History In Service
One of the few broad gauge vehicles that was regularly bogie exchanged between the broad and narrow gauge systems. It ran between Melbourne and Broken Hill, initially being bogie exchanged onto the narrow gauge. Later the bogie exchange was from broad to standard. Reclassification was after Sept 1979 at which time it was running only on the standard gauge.
