1907 Built ZJ type Brakevan, Number 367 arrived at the Hotham Valley Tourist Railway in 1981.

ZJ 367

Originally classified as a "Bogie Express Brakevan" it is one of the type which was seen commonly on country trains in the closing years of passenger traffic.

In 1965 number 367 was rebuilt with a freezer compartment and with special doors fitted on one side of the car body for better access.

ZJ 367 is seen here at Picton as support car for Dining Car AV 426 during a safari tour to Pemberton.

It has been used by HVTR on safari tours for carrying passengers luggage and spare mechanical equipment but its main function now is as a support vehicle for the popular Etmilyn Forest Diner.
