Bogie Brake van Z6790 (later Z109)

This van was converted from AS class six-wheeled mail vans AS251 in May 1906.  On conversion it became Z6790. 

It lost its clerestory roof when rebuilt unlike Z6785/9 (later Z107/8).

It had 4'-10" bogies and was 32'-0" long. It became Z109 in August 1939 and was written off in June 1949. It is not know if it was ever re-bodied like Z108 but it seems unlikely.

 

 No picture of the whole van has  come to light as yet but there is this Battye Library photo of the central section.  It shows that at least the doors were retained from the old AS.
