Product InfoUntil 1968, fully fitted freight trains were required by lawto be carry a break van at the end. The brake van provided brake functionalityto help slow the train as well as acting as a space in which the trains guardcould carry out additional duties such as paperwork. As a result most brakevans featured a stove and desk on top of the brake apparatus. The London,Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) built 2653 20 ton break vans between 1933and 1947. These featured a wooden structure that spanned most of the frame,with open covered areas at either end to provide the guard with an excellentview of the train.
