Victorian Railways   

E - Open   &   S - Flat Wagons

VR E Open wagon

In 1924 the VR bought two knocked-down wagon kits from American Car & Foundry as part of the order for the SAR. These wagons were assembled at Newport Workshops and coded E1 and E2. In 1927-1928 the Victorian railways assembled an additional 200 wagons to the same design. 

VR S Flat wagon 

In 1924 the Victorian Railways imported two flat wagon kits from American Car and Foundry, these were assembled by the VR in 1925 and issued the numbers S1 and S2. Between 1940 and 1942 an additional 100 S flat wagons were converted from bogie E wagons by having their side and end panels removed. Most were returned to open wagon traffic during 1947 with HY style welded steel sides and ends. Those not rebuilt remained as S flat wagons or were converted for Oil Tank traffic.

 

The models were initially designed and tooled by Eureka Models, Phoenix have revised the design and expanded the range to cover a larger variety of prototypes.
