The LSWR built 400 of these vans between 1892 and 1912 in the company’s own works at Eastleigh to two diagrams. The difference being 1½ inches on the width of the van. Most of these vans were built with vacuum brakes and 3ft5 wheels. Initially these vans were painted in the standard LSWR brown livery with white lettering. However it was found that the ice was melted to fast so from1907 they were repainted in a light pink livery with dark red lettering.
