Brake Vans, also known as the Guard’s Van, is the British equivalent of the term caboose. Located at the rear of the locomotive, brake vans are a crucial part to slowing and stopping the train. The standard brake van differentiates in appearance from the caboose, and usually has four wheels. The brake van is also equipped with a hand brake, which can be applied by the guard. The average small load locomotive would sport one of these models, but there could be larger brakes with more wheels.
