|Class H (class JW before 1900) GSR type low-sided wagons (GSR class L before 1898)|
Wagon 15L blown up from State Library of WA BA888/6
In 1898 the W.A.G.R. took over the stock of the Great Southern Railway. Many of the G.S.R. wagons were built on a standard 14'-0" long underframe, as were these low-sided wagons. The same design were also used by theM.R.W.A. as their class I. The original GSR numbers of this group are not known. However, a partial photo in the Battye Library collection (BA888/6) shows one, numbered 15L.
|It is believed that the original W.A.G.R. number sequence for these wagons was 4316-4339. However, by 1900 numbers 4336 and 4338 were no longer in service. Numbers 4317, 4318, 4328, and 4339 were rebuilt to class F louvre vans at about the same time 1900/01. Before 1908 numbers 4319, 4331 and 4333 were also out of service as these numbers were re-used for new GC class wagons in that year. The demise of the remaining wagons in this group seems to have been as follows:|
|1928||4332 replaced by GC|
|1929||4323 replaced by GC. To JETTY 311|
|1935||4330, 4335, 4337 written off|
|1939||4320 written off. To JETTY 48 (possibly in 1938)|
|1942||4321 written off. 4334 to JETTY 559 but listed as JETTY stock in 1940.|
|1947||4329 to JETTY 66|
|1949||4290, 4322 to JETTY 671, 57|
|1950||4325 written off|
|1954||4324 written off|
|1956||4316, 4326 written off|
|1958||4327 written off|
