As my collection of Victorian Railways rollingstock grows, I had to have a guard's van (that's a brake van or caboose to you non Aussies).
Z vans were a classic feature of the Victorian Railways from the early 1900s to the 1970s. At one stage there were over 700 Z vans, but they were rebuilt and recoded, many to ZL (the L stands for long-shank couplers, which were installed to reduce harsh slack action). This particular ZL van had a wood frame, three axles, and planked sides.
