In January 1980 I visited the site of Wisbech station on the still (just) extant ex GER March to Wisbech branch and saw this old brakevan parked on the buffers.It has a white wagon label with a red stripe on the side.Does anyone know which company made it and possibly whether it was preserved? It was very unusual to see a van without end platforms on BR in 1980 except for the LMS pattern.
I believe this is a photo of a "Toad E" built by the LNER in the '30's. The earlier Toad B is similar, except for a wooden ducket, rather than pressed steel as seen in this photo. There is a good Parkside kit of the Toad B, as well as drawings and photos of both vehicles in Tatlow's early volume on LNER goods wagons. Hope this helps. John
