Standard 3/4 view of her before and after:
M97 is a former South Australian Railways/Australian National Railways (AN) M19-Z63.
She is recorded, on material provided by the National Railway Museum as being purchased by the SAR during the 1959/60 Financial year for £604.

I purchased her and transported her home from Victoria in 2001.

She was in a very poor state, typical of the Fairmont cars at the end of their career with AN.

This car had some major mechanical issues which needed to be addressed prior to its return to an operational status.
