WMC, WMD and WME Class hopper wagons.

The Western Mining Corporation acquired Forty-four WMC class hopper wagons in 1965/6. They were numbered 11-30 (1965) and 31-54 (1966).

In 1969 eleven of them were written off (14, 17, 20, 22, 27, 30, 33, 35, 36, 37, 47) and eleven more issued as new stock (55-65)! In 1971 numbers 41 and 49 were written off and in 1975 the remaining wagons (11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 18, 19, 21, 23-26, 28, 29, 31, 32, 34, 38, 39, 40, 42-46, 48, 50-65) were rebuilt to WMD standard with side extensions for wheat traffic.

In 1987 16, 42, 50 and 53 were converted to class WME.

Some of these wagons at least have since been sold to Chile.
