VICTORIAN GY OPEN WAGON PROTOTYPE OVERVIEW

The ubiquitous 22 ton capacity GY 4-wheel open wagons were constructed for the Victorian Railways between 1939 and 1958. In all, 6320 wagons were built. Just over half of these wagons were built at the Victorian Railways Newport, Ballarat & Bendigo Workshops, while the balance were built by A E Goodwin,  Pressed Steel Co England, Bermingham England and Metro Cammel England. The last of the GY wagons was removed from revenue service in the late 1980s.

These wagons were seen on all railway tracks in Victoria, mainlines and branchlines alike. They were used for grain haulage together with the haulage of general freight. It is reported that with bulk grain trains, they would often work in rakes of up to 73 hoppers. A tarpaulin would frequently be used to cover the load. 

When the GY wagons were built, they were painted in VR Wagon Red. From around 1948, a diagonal yellow stripe was applied to the corners of GY wagons to differentiate them from HY wagons (which were not grain-proofed). From 1969, the GY wagons were repainted into an all yellow livery. Representatives painted in VR Wagon Red lasted until the late 1970s.
