Abandoned carriage OWA91

Wegmann carriage OWA91 was originally built for the Australian National Railways as BRF91 in 1952 as a second class 4 berth sleeping car with lounge accommodation. In 1973 it was converted into community health car for use on the Tea and Sugar and recoded to OWA91. In 1995 it was retired and in 1998 was sold to Mr M.Menzies of Victoria (Rail Experience). The carriage was transferred from Port Augusta in 2001 and by 2006 was stored under the old Cement Shed at the Melbourne Steel Terminal. It was destroyed by fire in arson attack in September 2017, and scrapped in May 2018.
