Wickham Type Four - SAR BGunit
These photos are of theEngine, Diff and builders plate of a Type Four in the NationalRailway Museum at Port Adelaide.
The plate confirms this as aType Four, with a JAP motor, Serial number 933209 car number7328.
This car was built for broadgauge use (probably for the SAR as a trial unit) and delivered in1956.
Records also indicate thatthe SAR also took delivery of a Type 4 (BN 7414, of July, 1956) on42".
A Type 27 (7327) also came toSA, but to whom remains a mystery.
One wonders if this was thetrial car, and that the heavier Fairmont cars won the competition.Perhaps a rather rare Wickham indeed!
