GWR  16 Ton  Toad Brake Van
Diagram AA3

  PROTOTYPE. This was the oldest 20-ft over headstocks Toad built by the GWR. More than 500 of these vans were built between 1888 and 1901. The earliest being 13 ton vans, later ones being 16 and 20 tons. They lasted well into BR days. This brake van would be used on the typical Great Western branch line goods train.

  KIT. Construction is very straightforward, but there is a lot of push-out rivet detail, which can take some time to form. A pre-rolled brass roof is provided, as is straight brass wire for the handrails. The fit of all parts is very good.
