This 20 ton Brake van was built by the LMS at Derby in 1929 to Diagram D1647, Lot No. 453. It was purchased by a group of members from the Avon Valley Railway, where it had been their first passenger-carrying vehicle. It came to Midsomer Norton in 2003. It is currently (Autumn 2017) in the latter stages of renovation.
