C - Hearse Van

The hearse van class started in 1893 with conversions from _E__ mail vans. E 1, 2, 3 were modified to C 1, 2, 3.

In 1902/03 vans numbered 4 - 9 were built.

The vans were kept at Flinders St in the 'Mortuary Dock'.

In 1909/10 the class was altered to _J__. At this time the short four wheel vans were rebuilt onto six wheel underframes, using two vans to make one long car. Three rows of compartments were added.
