BR Box Van B756169

Previously Army number WG4069 this is 4 wheeled ventilated Box Van. Many of this type of wagon were built, this example was to BR diagram 1/208.

There has been no information forthcoming on its Lot number when built or indeed whether it was even owned by BR.

One set of doors have been completely rebuilt.

To enable it to look prototypical in demonstration S&D freight trains, following some research the Trust has decided to renumber it within a range that was used by BR for this vehicle diagram and retaining its last 3 digits from its Army number.

This vehicle was one of the first arrivals on the S&D since the track was removed from the station in 1969 and was transported from Yeovil in 2005. It is owned by the Somerset & Dorset Railway Heritage Trust.
