Hi Guys,
A simple question.What difference was there between a Brake Van painted in Grey to one painted in BR Bauxite Brown. Were they used on different types of goods trains, fitted /unfitted ??

As mentioned previously many brown painted brake vans only had a brake valve for the guard and were not themselves fitted with vacuum operated brakes. This raises the interesting point that on a fully fitted freight train the only vehicle the driver couldn't control the brakes on was the brake van!
