These 20-ton brake vans were a continuation of the LNER design with slight modifications. This example was built at Darlington Works and is one of approximately 5,000, of which there are only a few hundred left. Due to trains being fitted the continuous brake system, these vans are no longer required to assist in the braking of the train. This van came into preservation from BR in 1986.
