The Southern Railway, and its immediate predecessors, had distinctive brake van designs. They were surprisingly long lived and found widely across much of BR in engineers use, possibly because of their high 25ton tare. Photographs show them in the Midlands during the 1950s, and more moved when the Southern Region went air brake. Some were rebuilt, some air braked. There were also bogie vans and Sharks.
