WBA class Brake vans

The first five WAGR standard gauge brake vans were the WBA class vans numbered 801-805.  They were built by Com. Eng at Bassendean.

Interestingly they were numbered in the same brake van series as the WAGR's narrow gauge brake vans and did not have numbers in the 30000 series used for standard gauge rolling stock. These were a copy of the South Australian all steel brake vans built from 1961 onwards numbered 8314 upwards used on both broad and standard gauges.
