This Steam And Things kit is for a 6-wheel "Improved Standard" Luggage Van of 1854-1856 that was listed under passenger stock with about thirteen built by two builders for the GWR. They were all condemned / scrapped between about the late 1870s and late 1880s.

They were 27 foot 3 inches long and had three compartments and a guard's area. The grease axle boxes held splayed ten spoke wheels of four foot diameter.
