Ex GWR 'Toad' Brake Van in Bachmann Collectors Club Anniversary livery.

The Great Western Railway's Toad brake vans were so called due to the company's use of telegraphic codes to ensure that goods wagons were delivered to the destinations where they were required. Each type of wagon was coded and these brake vans appeared in telegraphic messages as 'TOAD', hence why the name was adopted for these brake vans. This model represents the GWR's 20 Ton brake vans.

The model is finished in the Bachmann colours of Blue and Red, to mark the 15th Anniversary of the Bachmann Collectors Club. The van carries the BCC logo on each side along with the number 'W 1997-12' and the branding BCC and Barwell. The ends carry the branding Barwell and 15 signifying the 15th Anniversary. The printed detail extends to the sole bar which has a printed builder's plate which is fully legible and reads 'BCC Anniversary 20 Tons 2012'.
