V/Line VOFX Superphosphate Open

The VOFX is built up from an AMK Engineering kit (with Steam Era Models bogies) and added detail - handrails, additional fine tarp rope railings, brake chain and motion, air hoses, tarp and card tarp supports, decals and Kadee #58 couplers. Other than that it's a pretty standard build of the kit. I have included some pictures below showing the progression of the build.

 Showing the added tarp rope railings per several VOFXs seen on Shepparton-Scoones Siding (Kyabram) traffic in the late 1990s.

 Showing card formers cut out to the shape of the "lower" style of tarp support gear.
