North British Railway
20 ton Brake Van

  PROTOTYPE. These distinctive vans with their enclosed verandas to protect the guard from the worst of the Scottish weather were built in the early 1920s by the NBR to diagram 32B. They spent most of their working lives in LNER livery but a few continued in service with British Railways.

  KIT. Main construction is straightforward and uncomplicated but a nice amount of etched strapping and handrails provide some pleasantly challenging detail work. The distinctively curved lookout duckets are castings and the brass roof is pre-formed.
