Pre 1979 code: CJ

Used for transporting cement.

CJs were built in the 1950s to transport cement powder from Fyansford near Geelong to Melbourne. There were originally 97 CJ wagons. They had higher roofs fitted in the 1960s to increase their capacity. They were reclassified as VHCA in 1979. A small number of these wagons were adorned with the Geelong Cement sign.

Model manufactured by: Aust-N-Rail

These models are the higher roof version. These are a simple kit to assemble and paint. The decals provided make it a bit tricky to get the wagon number you want. VHCA 10 was one to get the Geelong Cement wagon. I got the "10" decal from elsewhere hence it being slightly oversized.
