TP Bogie Iced Van kit

With the introduction of the tri-weekly "Fruit Flyer" service between Mildura and Melbourne in October 1958, three TP vans were converted from 16 ton T vans to allow fast transhipment of perishable commodities on this route. The TP vans were equipped with TT 30 bogies and three separate iced compartments were provided. A further two T vans were converted to TP configuration in 1967 but retained the single large iced compartment and this kit is representative of one of these vans.

The dates of conversion and withdrawal of these vans are as follows

  • TP 4 ex T381 5.67 withdrawn 2.84

  • TP 5 ex T356 5.67 withdrawn 5.84
