Vernier Diesel Man Car

Vernier Diesel Man Car

Status: Operational

This former BHP man car worked at the BHP Elouera Colliery and was built by Vernier Engineering of Wollongong. After arriving at the ILRMS, it was chosen to be converted to operate on our 2ft gauge mainline track. The conversion for two foot gauge operation and a mechanical overhaul is now complete. The unit had a complete repaint and has successfully been trialed on the ILRMS track. It is operational on some runnings days and is used during the school holidays.
