This is one of 20 vanfits that came from the British Sugar Factory at Spalding in 1992 and came to the Nene Valley Railway.

This was British Railways standard covered van. This one was built at Wolverton in 1957 to lot 2991 Diagram 1/208. 19063. This Diagram were built, in 22 lots.

It is a number of years since all or most of these Vanfits have run together in one train at the NVR. Lets hope they will some day all will run in one train again. This was  BRs main covered van.

I have 19 more to add to the list below!

 This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is a webe site on railways, but it is not just on trains, but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, wagons like this page, any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.

Today EWS, East Coast, Central trains and EWS are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not mean, thats whos train it is these days. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!
