927003 Rapido Diagram 1426 Van number 45784 - SR early brown

The SECR used its standard 9ft 6in wheelbase steel underframe for a new cover van that would set the standard until Nationalisation in 1948. The Diagram 1426 van was different to previous SECR designs and featured an elliptical roof, end ventilators, lift-link brake gear and self-contained buffers. The design was so successful that it became the basis of the standard Southern Railway van. It was the SR which allocated the diagram number to this design. Nearly 250 Dia. 1426s were built, with many of them surviving into BR days in both revenue and Departmental service. One, No. 15750, survived into preservation and can now be seen on the Bluebell Railway.
