Class VDA bogie vans

WAGR official photo of VDA23161 (RHWA collection)

In 1967 three VD class vans (23117, 23147, 23161) were rebuilt. The lower body sides were planked whilst the upper sides had steel louvres. This conversion seems to have been successful in that these features together with the door arrangement of the VF class were used in the new VG class vans in 1969-70. However, no further conversions took place.

In 1986 23147 was rebuilt as an RCJ whilst 23117 and 23161 followed in 1987.
