Advans have always been popular staple in the model railroad layouts. Advans are known for transporting various goods and are excellent moving billboards for companies to put their advertisements on. At European Vintage Model Trains, we have original varieties of Darstaed Advans, designed for Darstaed by Rob Horton. Each Advan was created with beautiful detail and lithographs, and only 500 of each livery were ever made.

A4 Pacific Brake Van

Darstaed Brake Vans


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.
