111-9. T375. North Ballarat. Note the 4-wheel cattle wagon behind the engine. One of them I saw at Bendigo, just a year or two earlier than this picture, had a manufacturer’s plate that indicated it was built in 1898. They were amongst the oldest wagons on the system. 

 

111-10. T375. North Ballarat. The 6 or so open 4-wheel wagons in the rear are grey and red South Australian Railways “0” wagons. I still miss seeing the Z-type guards van at the rear of a train.
