NSWGR LHG / GHO Brake Van
160 of these 49’3” long vans were built by three different companies between 1915-16 through to 1921-22, all rode on 7’0” wheelbase bogies. Kilborn and Willick constructed 55 vans, Meadowbank Mfg Co constructed 55 vans and Clyde Eng 50 vans. All were built with end windows in the Guards section, these were later removed from about the 1940s.
were coded LHG from delivery, some were coded OHG with screw
couplings for passenger train working but reverted to LHG with
auto couplers in the early 1960s.
vans were recycled with their underframes being shortened for
the OHG programme, 18 were reused as W&W vehicles.
The models will be arriving late 2021.
