Description

The SR 25 ton ‘Pillbox’ brake van was constructed around the mid 1930s and was an advance on an earlier shorter wheelbase van, being heavier with a better ride and a more effective hand braking system.

Brake vans and their associated guards were a common sight at the rear of goods trains and ensured that the hand brake was applied at the appropriate time (most wagons did not have vacuum braking or through brake lines controlled from the locomotive), for maintaining oil lamp based signals to the driver of the train, to station personnel and signalmen and to ensure the train was operating correctly and safely from his vantage point (via especially constructed side duckets) at the rear of the train.

This type of brake van operated until the 1950s and several examples survive into preservation.
