Model Catalogue Information

2002 This Driving Brake Van is similar to those seen attached to the rear of Virgin Trains coach formations as they travel to and from London. The use of these units obviates the necessity for the locomotive to be detached from one end of the train and attached to the other for the return. The model is unpowered and is suitable for use with all Virgin coaches when used in conjunction with R2290 Virgin Bo-Bo Electric Class 86 locomotive.
