U Vans - 1467 to 1796
The third series of
10’6” wheelbase U vans were rebuilt using the underframes from
earlier wooden bodied U vans. They were converted at the Bendigo North
Workshops between 1956 and 1959.
There were 330 in the class
and some lasted in traffic until the early 1980s. The body construction
was similar to the early VF bogie vans and they all had sliding doors
and corrugated iron roofing. There was some variation in the ends of
the vans and both styles are modelled.
