They're CE wagons, ex. South Australian OB class wagons built in the '20s. Quite versatile wagons actually, being used for logs, super, containers, rocks and even now, wagon wheels!

Done it again! This one is at Bridgenorth. The old bloke that lives in it says the roof is original (two hights??), it is on its original steel 45 foot long under frame too. He's lived in it since the mid 90's when they got it from the farm on the opposite side of the road!

Yes, its a good bet it was ABS2 (confirmed by the underframe length as quoted by E.C. & i_k_n ) - latterly Camp 158. The roof line is original - the raised section accommodating the one time sleeping section.

Another top effort Electric C - or should that be "Bloodhound" C!!

P.S. Address or Google co-ordinates?

Found CD 6, I'd seen this wagon from my school bus years ago, and thought nothing of it until they cleared some of the blackberries last week!

CD6!!! You little beauty Clynton! I was convinced the CD's - the TGR's last open wagons were completely extinct!

Again, I must know, whats the address in Rosevears?

How are you finding these? You have a real knack for finding some absolute gems!

For your next challenge, can you locate a BC cement wagon somewhere?? Smile

They had 2 silos with conical tops and retangular cut-outs at the bottom. They were once a common feature on Southern Line trains until replaced by AN's green bullet shaped ISO containers and the PB (ex TB/TX) hoppers.

I had a look via Google satellite view (haven't got the Google Earth plug-in on my work computer) and can make out an object bridging the creek where you described at Google co-ordinates: -41.353767,147.032982. Is that it?

Also apparently has at least one vacuum cylinder as well. A clean up, a set of A3 bogies and voila! A 'CD' arises from oblivion!

A pair of X wagon bogies would be a better match for this vintage of wagon.....
