VFTX - Log Traffic Flat Wagon


With altered traffic patterns, quite a number of VLEX louvre vans were stored during the mid-1990's. An aggressive marketing approach for sawn pine logs traffic by (then) Freight Victoria created a need for dedicated wagons. 44 surplus VLEX louvre vans were subsequently modified by the removal of the bodies and the fitting of stanchions and winches to the underframes. The sawn logs are sourced from various areas around the state and unloaded at the wharves of North Geelong. The VFTX's are numbered 1 to 44.
