Re: Re: Down by the Yarra.

Well Andrew, you have come up with another corker - two swing door Ms
bracketing three Tait trailers. I see smoking and non-smoking signs on the
cars so not at the end of swing doors as I first thought. But a quick
search of victorianrailways dot net doesn't reveal when smoking on subn
trains was dropped. I see swing door cars ended late in 1973 though.
