VAM / SZ - Sleeping Car


VAM

VAM 1 was the only carriage in the class.

It was a 20 berth sleeping and sitting car. It entered service in 1963 and seemes to have been a spare sleeping car for the standard gauge service Melbourne to Sydney.

Through the years it has been noted in Broad Gauge service on the 'Overland'. This may have occurred during workshops maintenance times when it would have been transferred to broad gauge.
