Robert Hudson^ and Wm Bayliss were agents.

#          Wickham records show these works numbers with a suffix “A”, but it is unlikely that these works numbers were carried on the completed trolleys.

##        Three separate order numbers.  No engines supplied by Wickham.

**        There is limited information on these trolleys, but there were separate order numbers for the five batches shown

^         An email from Ian Jolly confirms Robert Hudson as an agent - apparently orders were placed through that company, and then delivered directly to the customers address: further information on ths company can be found on Wikipedia

     

In January 2016, at least 31 cars from the NSW fleet were known to exist, though in differing states of repair
