GY Open Wagon

The GY wagon fleet was one of the largest single classes of goods vehicle in VR service and was primarily a bulk commodities wagon, although general goods could be carried. They were constructed by government workshops and contractors between 1939 and 1953, with conversions from GZ, IZ and HY wagons swelling the total to more than 6,200 by 1970. The GH wheat hopper and G general purpose wagon are direct conversions from GY wagons. The wagons represented by this kit were numbered 1-910, 2001-3729, 3380-6149 and 15870-17030. The last group of numbers were conversions from HY wagons that took place between 1961 and 1965.
