Carriages

86105 is a BRBritish Rail or British Railways Mark 1 General Utility Van. These vehicles were built for use on express passenger services as well as parcels and freight trains, and were classed as Non Passenger Carrying Coaching Stock. The side doors allowed loading of containerised mail and parcels and newspapers. The GUVs were 'through piped' for use on steam heated services, although they were not themselves steam heated.[1]
