The Elderly Brake Van is an old brake van who claims to have come from the Other Railway many years ago.
He 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 an LNER brake van.
The Elderly Brake Van appears to be based on an LNER Diagram 61 "Toad D" brake van. This type of brake van was the forerunner to the 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.
