This car is a NSWGR Departmental Heavy Gang Car - mor commonly known as a "VW", because they were powered by a Volkwagen Industrial engine. This engine was also used to run compressors.
I have been told that they are very powerful, and capable 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 most welcome. But in the meantime Visit Greg Lees notes
The rear of the car carries the motor
