BMX - 1964 Steel Boxvan


BMX vans were recoded and upgraded from the BMF_ vans of 1961.

They were used extensively throughout Victoria and were always seen in interstate traffic.

The BMX numbers were: 1 - 70, 72, 73, 75 - 78, 98, 100 and 102.

Some BMX vans were downgraded to BMF_ during 1978/79 with "aligned" bogies.

The remaining vans were given the new code letters of VBAX in the 1979 recoding.
