Ffestiniog  Sentry Guards Van Kit
16mm Scale FR Sentry Guards Van Kit
The earliest known brake vans were a series of four-wheelers built at Boston Lodge for the start of passenger services in 1865. They were low-slung to match the Birmingham carriages, and had an open platform at the downhill end. In the early days passenger trains gravitated down the line under control of the Guard, so the brake wheel was located on the platform, which was later fitted with a small shelter for the guard covering one side of the platform. Because of the shelter they are often referred to as the 'Sentry-box' Vans
