Fairmont M19-Z42 - Emu Bay Railway

I found this car 10 years ago on my first trip to Tasmania, in the yard at the Don River Railway, near Burnie.

Despite some interesting conversations, no-one seems to know its history, other than it was from the EBR. An "unreliable" source suggests that this is the first M19-Z42 imported into Australia, yeah, well.....

It did have a canopy, but that has been removed during its refurbishment

A guess would date it as being Mid 50's, when the M19-Z42's were being built.

The car was extensively damaged in a fire early in 2023.
