QD Class wagon for conveyance of diesel engines.


In 1938 Q4475 was fitted with a van type body for the conveyance of diesel engines (presumably for the Governor (ADE) class Railcars).

The record cards are unclear as to when this wagon was reclassified QD.  The Q class card says it was converted to class QD in May 1953 whilst the QD class class card says that this wagon was converted from class Q in July 1938.  It may have run with the van body as a class Q from 1938  to 1953.

With a van type body it should probably have been given a classification somewhere amongst the V group. This unique wagon was written off in 1982.

Although not clear in a black and white photo the body colour was pale green.
