EFE Rail [OO] E87053 LSWR 10T Ventilated Van in SR Brown (Early)
The Diagram 1410 van was the most numerous ventilated van built by the London & South Western Railway (LSWR). Construction began in 1885 and more than 1,000 were built, with various detail differences introduced over the lifetime of the vans. These characterful vehicles feature outside framing, sliding doors and were built with a reduced height when compared with vans built later on. This particular model depicts one such Diagram 1410 van in early SR livery (large lettering ? pre-1936) and is fitted with Freighter brakes, Warner axle boxes and plain tapered buffers. From 1912 the LSWR built further vans to the new Diagram 1406 which were some 7 inches taller than the Diagram 1410, followed soon after by Diagram 1408 vans which featured hinged doors rather than sliding ? this allowed the van body to be slightly wider, increasing the payload. Both of these further types also feature in the EFE Rail range.
