The Way and Works Train. When many vans and coaches had finished their economic life in main line service they were transferred to service stock. Most of the larger stations had a few vans, wagons and coaches painted cream and silver lying around in the yard as storage or sleeping accommodation for the Way and Works crews who kept the system running behind the scenes. Many LHG Brake vans finished up in this role.
Austrains will be releasing a two car pack consisting of an LHG van and LFX coach ( based on original photographs ) painted cream with silver roof. This will be a Limited Edition of 480 sets only selling at $230.00 for the twin pack. It is a once only run and will not be repeated. When we have had the LHG on display at exhibitions interest in this set has been very high. The W&W set will have to wait until the production run of the LFX coach happens.
