This batch was numbered1582-1631.  In the 1970’s they were upgraded for use in Central Queensland Coal traffic.

The vehicle rides on a version of the Bettendorf style freight bogie. For On42, there is a stock S gauge 5’6″ wheelbase bettendorf freight bogie, which has a slightly shorted wheel base than the prototype but otherwise closely matches the specifications. These bogies are available with the kit.
