Pay back


On temporary display at Sydney's Central Station (before it moves off to the NSW Rail Heritage Centre at Thirlmere), here is the last surviving example of a recently-restored 1936 "Pay Bus". It was built at Smith & Waddington's, Camperdown (where my paternal grandfather once served his apprenticeship), and delivered fortnightly salaries to railway employees and track maintenance gangs.
