  • About this Vehicle:

    This model represents the standard, outside framed, covered van used by the GNR. In 1906,the GNR recorded 1563 covered vans. At grouping, 669 covered vans are recorded as surviving into LNER stock. These covered vans were actively constructed from about 1867 (Stirling) until about 1905 (Gresley) when outside framed vehicles were gradually replaced by inside framed stock. Photographic records of wagon stock (RAIL 326/682 and RAIL 326/1072 at the National Archives, UK) depict a number of variations. The earliest version appears to have a missing section of roof centrally placed which was used for loading and covered with a tarpaulin. A few vehicles (69 in 1911) were fitted for use in passenger trains.

    Vans of a similar design were used on the Cheshire Lines Committee (CLC) and Midland & Great Northern (M&GN).

    Any representation of GNR or LNER practice should include some of these vans. They travelled all over the country.
