Manufacturer description
During 1927 and 1928, the Southern Railway found itself with a large surplus amount of ex-LSWR underframes, as many of the former LSWR Bogie Block 4-coach sets were converted to EMUs on new 62' underframes. The spare underframes proved an ideal base for the new Gangwayed Bogie Luggage Vans (GBL) that the SR were looking to build at the time. The GBL vans were mainly used across the SR's Western Section, with just a few working in the Eastern Section on Parcels traffic and Chatham passenger trains.
