Something odd about all this --- I didn’t get a response to my query from TDU but a day later via Mal. But anyway Jeremy, yes, there’s a butterbox body at Bylands, or was – suppose it is still there. I was present there when the Penngelley (which I had helped paint as weather protection when in open storage) arrived but don’t actually remember the BB arrival. I don’t think memory is defective but could be, maybe somebody else can confirm its existence.

Does TMSV indeed have a Butterbox? As I understand it, a

Geelong Pengelley fetched up at Bylands (with the attendant need for a Radiax truck), but a Butterbox?

Hi Bill,

I did answer yesterday - see:

Geelong 2 looks different because it has been restored to the original two-man open California combination style.

The ends were enclosed in the first half of the 1930s and they looked like the pic at:

I queried whether Geelong 2 was/is a Butterbox.

I recall the excitement when Bylands got the body of one. But Geelong 2 doesn’t look like one (or maybe I’ve just forgotten).
