Emu Bay Railway CM Class Van

The CM Class originated with the North Mount Lyell Railway. When the NMLR closed the EBR purchased many open and several closed wagons including what became the CM class. Like much EBR stock, they had very long lives lasting at least until the 1960's. While it may look too short, the model is actually accurate - these wagons had a very short wheelbase (5'3") - even shorter than many mainline bogies!

PVH 1 Completion

Here's the completed PVH 1, mostly finished excepting some detail and corrective work. At this stage I can't bring myself to weather her, though she is intended to appear as first in service on the EBR so a pristine appearance is in character.
