EFE Rail [OO] E87056 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. An increase of 7 inches in the height of the van from 1912 resulted in a new Diagram (1406), and soon after another new design with hinged doors rather than sliding – allowing the van body to be slightly wider and thus increasing the payload – was introduced as Diagram 1408. Whilst all three diagrams are modelled in the EFE Rail range, the latter of the three is the subject of this model which is finished in early SR livery (large lettering – pre-1936) and features a flush roof, Lift Link brakes, Panter axle boxes, fabricated buffers and three-hole disc wheels.
