Powerline's MHO painted yellow with black striped ends?

Does anybody know if Powerline's yellow (Way & Works) MHO was based on an actual prototype?

Google hasn't helped me on this occasion.

If so, do you have any details of the "L" number it carried and/or any pics of the vehicle please?

I bought one recently to go on a "breakdown train" I'm making, but it is devoid of any decals.

I can only ever recall older type "L" carriage stock such as dog boxes being used.

It's no big deal, just curious.....if nobody knows anything, I will just make-up a number before I weather it.

The car certainly did exist and was part of the Broadmeadow breakdown train.

It appears in the edge of a photo I took in Broadmeadow during the 1990s showing only the end of the car with the striping.
So I can't help with body changes and the service stock number.

Have you checked the number lists in Coaching Stock Volume 2, which often lists subsequent service stock numbers?

Roachie,

I took some photos of the remains of the breakdown train in the Junee roundhouse a couple of years ago.  It is close to intact if you need any more info regarding the composition of a breakdown train.  It is one of those projects that awaits my attention "one day". The "people car" in that case was a 72'6" carriage if my memory is not astray.  Let me know if I can help.

Best regards,

These looks to be part of the breakdown train and stored at Junee Roundhouse circa 2011.  Photos credited to Paul Campbell on Flickr.
