Yarloop workshops destroyed in bushfire

David Halfpenny

This is absolutely gutting, even for those of us who can’t visit.

It set me to re-reading Gunzberg & Austin: “Rails Through the Bush” which is the only book I have on Yarloop.

On p55 there’s a picture taken at Nanga Brook showing half of a Meat Van.

Does anyone have any more pictures of it please?
In particular, did it have sliding side doors, or just open doorways like the similar Composite van/coach just visible behind a tree to the right, and shown better on p 30?

Thanks,  David 1/2d  England
