ABCL - 1st/2nd Class Carriage with Van


In 1918 the two McKeen cars were stripped of engines and traction equipment and converted to passenger carriages. They were carriages with First and Second class accommodation, a guards van compartment and toilets ( Lavatories, hence "L" in code ).

The cars were steam hauled and used in shuttle service on the Altona line; between Altona and Newport.

They ran in this service from 1919 to 1926 when they were replaced by the introduction of the electric suburban service.
