DW domestic water wagons

Number in Class 10
Number group 225 - 234
Construction period 1961
In service 1961 - late 70's
Where built
Converted from I/IA's this class carried potable water in departmental service to remote country locations that did not have a water service. Water for general use (including watering steam locos etc) was carried in WT's.

All the DW's I photographed had the discharge valve at the non handbrake end.

In 1977 two RY's were converted to what would be the last DW's
