ZAF class Temporary Brake vans

In the early fifties there was a brake van shortage because of the increase in traffic on the W.A.G.R. Five AF class coaches were converted to temporary brake vans in October 1952 and reclassified ZAF. As they were all originally different types of coach the bodies of all of this class were slightly different although they were all 42' long.

Once the new type 17 vans came into service the ZAFs were withdrawn. The chassis of ZAF433 was used to build coach AYE709.
