R6823 GWR AA15 20 Ton Goods Brake Van 'Toad' 56866
At first glance, it may seem that the Great Western Railway built huge numbers of 'Toad' brake vans that were all of the same design; four wheeled, of wooden construction and with a distinctive veranda at one end. Essentially this is true, as the basic design didn’t really change between 1888 and the 1950s, but the key here is ‘basic’, as when buffers, drawgear and body details changed, a new diagram number was issued and eventually this was to run to twenty three diagrams in the GWR’s AA index series.
