NZBF- L1036T for Work Train
On the 8th November 2007 OTHR investigated some items of rolling stock at Bathurst with the view to using them to form a work train. It was not until 18th February 2010 that we managed to acquire two items (including the BBP) by deed of transfer from ORH and the flat wagon by arrangement with a commercial operator.

Planned use:
This van is to be converted to a work train flat wagon. This flat wagon will enable work teams to convey sleepers rail and other materials. Machinery such as the excavator, compressor and tractor can also be loaded from the loading ramp at Oberon station.
Priority: Remove old decking and superstructure. Refurbish underframe and bogies. Replace and seal timber deck.
