This car is a NSWGR Departmental Heavy Gang Car -mor commonly known as a "VW", because they were powered by aVolkwagen Industrial engine. This engine was also used to runcompressors.
I have been told that they are very powerful, andcapable of a good turn of speed.
It appears these cars were built in Queensland by Bodeco, but am unsure of how many or where.
If you have further information, it would be mostwelcome. But in the meantime Visit GregLees notes
The rear of the car carries the motor
