In essence GWR introduced a new design of rolling stock in 1939 that they branded the Fruit D Van. BR built batches until 1958 which were both in the original GWR number series and in number series with their own coaches. The branding ‘Passenger’ indicated their suitability to work in passenger trains. Their flexibility allowed these vans to be used for seasonal transportation of goods amongst other freight!
