BV / OB - Second Class Bogie Car


BV

These Second Class cars were issued to service as BV, between 1898 and 1900. The "V" indicates stock fitted with end vestibule connections for communication between similar cars.

There are published histories which show the cars issued to service as "BVBV". This is inaccurate and not a reflection of official records.

OB

Two cars in the class were temporarily used in Joint Stock traffic between Melbourne and Adelaide. They were coded OB and numbered 33 and 36. These numbers were part of the Joint Stock "O" number group. Cars 33 and 36 were from BV 23 and 6 respecively. They ran in service between 1898/99 and 1907.

Whilst they were in traffic coded OB they were never officially recorded as such.
