Converted from existing BR 'Vanwides' between 1978 and 1983, the VEA vans were used for transporting MoD munitions and supplies. The vans were produced due to the fact that other larger stock couldn't negotiate the tighter curves and pointwork often found at Army bases. The vans ran in short block trains as well as in mixed feight speedlink services. With declining traffic following the end of the Cold War, the majority were scrapped in the 1990s, with some remaining in service at MoD sidings and depots.
