In Victoria, grain was transported to large inland terminals (Marmalake and Dunnoly) using GY wagons and was then transported to the ports (Geelong and Portland) for loading into ships using these GJF hoppers.

Actually I do live in Victoria...Melbourne even. So now you're probably wondering why I haven't made it to a MUGS meeting...it's just that the planets haven't aligned to allow it. Who knows, perhaps next weekend :)

I assumed you had come from NSW to Brickvention (I met you briefly there) :-) Hope to see you at a Mugs meeting in the future.

i just love the detail on this wagon amazing,does any body do plans and a shopping list for parts? ive seen plans on other sites, but to find the parts thats required for the build sends me cross eyed!!! :pir-cry_sad:  or is it a trade secret? very nice build indeed... :classic:
