R9C UB Van with Cast Steel Bogies

The UB van was a bogie version of the standard 16 Ton U van designed for the carriage of perishable goods although other classes of goods were carried under certain conditions. The vans represented by this model were introduced in 1908 with 6 wheel underframes. They were rebuilt in the 1930's with 4 wheels or as 'UB' bogie wagons. In the late 1960's/early 1970's some wagons had the bottom three louvres in the doors replaced with flat steel sheets. There were sixty 'UB' vans numbered from 1-60. In the 1950's and 1960's some wagons were recoded 'UP' or 'UF', later reverting to 'UB'. UB with cast bogies.
