GWR Toad Brake Van. In this period British freight trains were required to have a brake van at the rear of the train for safety reasons. Since many waggons only had manual brakes, the brake van would aid the engine with braking on declines and also help prevent couplings breaking when the train started moving. The guard who travelled in the van was first aid trained in case of an accident. (Has no practical function in the game, so has no cost or weight.)

Update: Improved performance. Improved detail.
Update: BR version added.

@Sabertooth - It may well be the model that is not helping. I've had a look and it's not very efficiently made as it was one of my early mods. I hope to get time to improve it before TpF2.

Not sure if it's just my mediocre setup, but I seem to get quite a lot of frame drop when I use the GWR version (not tried the BR version).

@JK - Ok Thank you

@Barshest113 - As I recall, in the full list it comes after engines, but before coaches and wagons. If you click any of the filters it will not appear. (Because it provides no power and but doesn't carry anything, the game doesn't classify it within any existing filters.) Also check your game date is after the start year of 1883.

I subscribed it but I cat't find it in the depot or the assets.
How can I sort this out?

Can you put a face on that please?

@Norfolk_Chris - Yeah, this is one of the ones I haven't got round to updating with an asset version yet.

Is it possible for to add this as a 'brush asset' like all your other goods vehicles? Most goods yards had a siding for brake vans.
