If Michael Harris' information is correct, this looks to me like one of the three Diag. 131 Post Office Sorting Vans built in 1929 for the North Eastern TPO. Though coded POS, these were apparatus vans equipped with net and traductor arms.

The leading brake is interesting too, it is a Great Central vehicle. A downgraded BFK perhaps?
