VHX / VLDX - Large Bogie Boxvan


VHX

There were twenty of these wagons built: 10 in 1963, 5 in 1964 and 5 in 1965. They were a stretched version of the VLX_ louvre van. Numbers were 1 to 20.

Body and roof were painted standard 'wagon red'. Only from about 1978 were some of the vans resprayed with silver roofs.

VLDX

VHX vans were recoded to VLDX in the 1979 recodings.

Main visual modifications done to these vans were the fitting of VSX type door equipment from the late 1970's.
