VLNX - Bogie Newsprint Van


For newsprint traffic between Ettamogah, NSW ( north of Albury ) and Melbourne, Vic., twenty five VLEX / VLEY louvre vans were modified, stencilled and reclassed in 1981.

The class was VLNX ( N=Newsprint ), the number group 1 - 25.

In 1994/1995, NRC_ took control of the newsprint traffic and the vans were reclassed to RLNX.

The wagons were subsequently returned during 1997 and stored at Tottenham Yard. During 1999 they were stored at Middle Creek but later returned to Tottenham Yard for further storage. During 2003, they were removed from storage, repainted into Freight Australia colour scheme and recoded to VLRX rice traffic louvre vans.
