DS46957 was a 10 ton Standard Covered Van built by the LBSCR. There were two 10T variants, those with wooden underframes and those with steel underframes. DS46957 was one of the wooden underframed variety. It was converted to a Tool Van for use at Newport IoW and the additional (lower) vent on the end was part of the conversion (there was one of these on each end). The wheelbase was 9' 9", length and width were 17' 4" over headstocks and 7' 8½" wide.

Vans As can be seen here at some time during its lifetime DS46957 had at least one of its LBSCR axleboxes replaced with a Southern Railway one.
