GHE Class high-sided wagon for fertiliser traffic with ridgepole

This class of thirty-two wagons was created by the conversion between 1977 and 1980 of several different types of wagons (classes GH, HCN and NO) using the standard 18'-0" chassis. They all had steel bodies with small end doors and were almost identical to the steel GHB class wagons. From February 1979 "Fertiliser Traffic" was stencilled on the wagon sides.
