VFA Class bogie vans

The end of wagonload traffic after the creation of "Total West" resulted in the conversion of many of the remaining vans for grain traffic. The louvres were sealed and roof hatches were added to produce classes VFA and VGA. Conversions from class VF were as follows:

1984 23204, 23210, 23218, 23222, 23231, 23237, 23239, 23247, 23249, 23254, 23258, 23259, 23268, 23273, 23278, 23285, 23294, 23299, 23301, 23302, 23316, 23321, 23326, 23327, 23330, 23331, 23335, 23339, 23343, 23350 from VF
