there are two DWF's sitting on a property on the eastern side of the Mt Barker to Woodchester Road a couple of KM's north of woodchester.

iirc there is another one or possibly two DWF's on the northern side of the road between littlehampton and nairne.

Gone. See here. My friend's sister said it rotted into the ground, so it had been there a while. H377 is at Bordertown (TDU).

Behind houses etc. There's also an 8300 van used as the local tennis club HQ.

A98, not A28 :oops:.

Back in 1986, a group of us discovered a front bunker of a 300 Class Garrett near Yatina, between Jamestown and Orroroo. The front end had been cut short and plated over and it was being used as a water storage tank next to a windmill. Each time I drive up that way, I have a look out for it, but I can't seem to find it anymore.

Thanks Roundhouse Rat.

When we were there, there was also a large iron tank as well - Looks like it has been replaced with a poly tank.

Back then, while we were there, the Cocky who owned the property came over to us and we had a good ol' chat with him and explained what we were doing. :)

This carriage went to house in Peterborough( Diagonally across the road from the Motorcycle museum), the house for sale and heard the dogbox is for sale as well for $1000. it has seen better days though

but roughly in the same location as this photo is a few NG wagons a SFNC flatcar, Y wagon, 2x W Gondola & another Y wagon sitting in the W Gondola.

Also about the 300 class Garratts is 4 of the 5 300 Class Garratts water tenders still around. 3 off them on a farm near Peterborough other one is the photo I put up(I did state 2 but found out to be 3)

From memory it is or was the same type of Dogbox that the NRM already has, but that car at Peterborough has been substantually altered over the years. Not a good example for display though, neither is the NRM's Dogbox at the moment, but most of it is stiil there it just needs a lot of TLC one of these days.

Yes, but I just reckon it would be nice to have more than one representative item of rollingstock that was used behind a particular loco. E.g. would be nice to have two or three of them behind the "F" or the "P" to give a realistic representation of a typical train configuration for that time.

Not many of these dog boxes around these days, and they arent making any more of them.

Personally, a far more desirable a get than something like Allambi.

just correction to my above post on price it $2000 not $1000, the bloke brought it for a $1000 and put it on concrete pad which cost a $1000 as well,so trying to cover cost of the concrete pad.

Sorry for the confusion,but still good price for piece SAR history

Another one for your list: DWF 242 is in someone's front yard just south of Kadina along the Arthurton road. It's in ANR red livery.

We only really need one of each type as after a couple like this you would run out of space for other exhibits in the future. One of some things is quite sufficient, and before you have a go about some things we have more than one of, I must admit if it came to the crunch then some of them could go as well, things like FB flatcars for example but at the moment they are use to store things on so they are useful.

The dogbox arch centre and the Cent Baggage would make up a typical type train as some dog boxes had knuckle couplers on both ends of them to be used like this, others had knuckles on end a screw couplers in between them as they all ran as fixed sets most of the time.
