LMS / BR Standard 12 ton Van

Between 1935 & 1936 7,500 12 ton vans were constructed to Diagram D1897, Lots 823,824 & 825 being vacuum fitted whilst Lots 826, 838, 839 and 840 were unfitted. Further similar vehicles were built up to 1945. Many non-fitted Vans were subsequently fitted by BR with automatic vacuum brakes, the pipes however were coach fashion and did not have the LMS wagon type upright pipe.

GWR / BR Standard 12 ton Van

The adoption of the RCH 17'6" underframe for the 12 Ton van in 1927 coincided with a change in door design to vertical planking, and after 1932 the 10'0" wheelbase was used, which the Dapol models replicate. Between 1933 and 1943 more than 8,500 vans were built both Vacuum and non-vacuum fitted to Diagram V23/V24 with a further 265 constructed between 1935 and 1939 to Diagram V26 code named "Parto" (With internal partitions to protect loads from damage)
