The KT's were built (ex IY underframes) to carry short logs, (pulpwood) for this purpose they had 2 dividers inside providing 3 compartments for the logs. After this traffic finished the dividers were removed and they saw out their careers in the same service as IT's, carrying sawn or "scantling" timber from the Orbost line to Melbourne
