Ex BR Vanwide ()
The Vanwide design was adopted to solve the problem with Palvans being loaded unevenly - the central doors are similar to earlier designs but wider and slide instead of folding. This was one rebuilt in the 80s with air brakes to allow use on Speedlink and similar services where existing track layouts did not allow use of longer wheel base vans. Later sold to the army for use internally - this one came from Bicester and has very worn wheels but is otherwise in good order and retains its army livery.
