THE LSWR 'NEW VANS', LATER SR DIAG.1543

Unlike the LMS, LNER, or even the GWR, the Southern Railway was not known for intensive freight traffic but the region still generated plenty of goods revenue, especially from the western counties. As goods traffic and speeds increased towards the beginning of the 20th century, the tare weight of the brake vans employed had to be increased, especially considering the steeply graded nature of many of the lines and the small 4-4-0 and 0-4-2 locomotives, better suited to passenger traffic, were used for goods haulage.
