The train part of the Ned Kelly film with Mick Jagger was filmed over two
weeks in August 1969. 1243 was the loco used, renumbered back to 176 for the
film. The Ned Kelly train was two CW cattle wagons converted to passenger
cars, and two CW cattle wagons. The "passenger cars" were at Thirlmere for
many years before being scrapped.

No - the two "passenger carriages" were not scrapped. They were
purchased by Mario Mencigar of Australian Train Movers and relocated
to his rolling stock storage area for possible re-sale. The
