The Comeng cars were built in Adelaide, South Australia, by Commonwealth Engineering.
They were ordered by Australian National in two batches in 1980 and 1981, leading to the Mark I and Mark II cars.
The information available to me suggests all were on the Standard gauge, including the above car allocated to Peterborough Gang, and preparing to head East on January 27, 1986.
They were powered by a GM Holden six cylinder petrol engine, through a standard three speed automatic transmission. They worked almost all areas of the standard gauge of the time.
