WBE class Brake vans

The WBE class brake vans were conversions of the unsuccessful WVB class 4 wheel vans. They were numbered WBE 891-896. WBE 896 was transferred to Lefroy Salt in 1975 but returned to WAGR stock in January 1984 (although there is a note on the record card "effective 23.8.82") as well as the January 1984 date!
