The Elderly Brake Van is an old brake van who claims to have come from the Other Railway many years ago.


The Elderly Brake Van once had a conversation with Diesel and the Troublesome Trucks about engines who were named after race horses. He mentioned engines like Lemberg and Pretty Polly, so it is likely that he was originally a brake van from the London and North Eastern Railway. [1]

Technical Details


The Elderly Brake Van appears to be based on a London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) Diagram 61 "Toad D" brake van. This type of brake van was the forerunner to the British Railways (BR) Standard 20 ton brake van.


The Elderly Brake Van is painted dark grey and has a grey wrinkled face similar to the Spiteful Brake Van.
