LNER 12 Ton Fruit Van

  PROTOTYPE. These 10ft wheelbase wooden underframe vacuum braked ventilated vans were built in large numbers during the 1930’s. They lasted well into BR days and were used throughout the LNER system to destinations all over Britain.

  Vans of this kind could be found individually on the most bucolic branch line as well as formed into long fitted main line freight trains. They were XP rated and so could run in local passenger trains and a couple of these vans tacked onto the rear of the afternoon branch line local to convey this urgent traffic to the junction would be a common sight.

  KIT. The etched body components are designed with overlapping and interlocking joints to help assembly, which is very straightforward. The sliding doors are white metal castings. A pre-formed brass roof is supplied.
