Auscision D vans

Auscision have released their BP/D vans. Back in the mid of 1992, Australian National sent the CO vans off the Overland, for maintenance, and these were replaced with V/Line CP and D van pairs.
CP and DT van pair on Overland passing Keswick barracks.
DT 335 on the service road AN Keswick terminal. (The T stands for through cabling)
At the other end, motive power was a V/Line N class diesel. These hauled the Overland right up to standardisation, and could haul a nine car train on a single head end power unit, any longer and it was double N class units.
I have also seen a photo from 1983, taken by Ray McDermott, of the Overland hauled by X48 and 958 arriving Adelaide, with a D van in T Cup livery, just  ahead of the car carrier.
