Guard van

F678 was built at the Addington Workshops in Christchurch in 1955 and is a 30′ steel clad guards van. It was orginally sub-leased from Feilding and Districts Steam Rail Society via the Rail Heritage Trust who own the van. 678  arrived at Silver Stream Railway in October 2013 and has been used on our passenger trains on operating days since. In 2018 SSR negotiated to lease  the van directly with the RHT, gifting carriage A2001 to FDSRS as part of these negotiations.
