General Utility Van (GUV)
94157 was originally numbered 86523 when built by Pressed Steel in 1958. It subsequently gained a TOPS classification of NJV, indicating that it was vacuum braked but fitted for electrical train heating.
It was renumbered 95360 during the 1980s, possibly to prevent confusion by clerical staff with numbers issued to Class 86 diesel locomotives. A rebuild for use as a containerised mail van resulted in a further renumbering as 94200. This configuration included roller shutter doors, steel floors and plated over windows; the TOPS code NKA also indicating fitting with air brakes only.<ref name=SVR155>SVR News 155</ref> It is equipped with commonwealth bogies.<ref>Railway Heritage Register Carriage Survey</ref>
