    Ok thanks. I will wait for loco allocations before booking as I would like to choose my loco and avoid having the same one all morning again

    By my reckoning, 5 - QM, Pillbox, BR, Toad, and this one (plus an SECR dancehall, but that's awaiting restoration). There's also a Van 'C' which can also be used as either a goods or passenger brake if needed.

    The vac pipe doesn’t preclude using on unfitted trains though. I believe that LSWR road vans were originally made in both fitted and unfitted versions.

    Make that 2 Pillboxes. I got 1 from ROF Puriton way back when (Mike Lawrence did the move, if that dates it), and the Urie society followed suit. Which one is which? - kinsavvy?

    I miscounted. 10 brake vans including the BYs....I suspect that might be "enough"?
