Bogie Brake vans Z15, etc

From 1936 a group of seven older brake vans was rebuilt with new bodies (type 15a). Most had 4'-10" wheelbase brake van bogies. However Z15 retained 5'-6" carriage bogies. These vans formed the pattern for a batch of eight new vans built in 1946 (Z221-8), which used old coach bogies (type 15b). The type 15a vans were numbered as follows:
