WOA class Iron ore wagons

The WOA class of thirty-nine wagons numbered 31302 - 31340 were built in 1970.

In 1984 nine wagons were sent to South Australia where their bogies were hired to Australian National until March 1985.

In 1986 twenty of the class were written off and "used for WHA wagons".

Fourteen of the class were converted to WOAS for superphosphate traffic which was quickly changed to WOS in 1989/90 (three going straight to WOS).
