GH grain wagons

Hi,

I have some questions in regard to differences between the fleet of GH wagons. Firstly, was there more GH's with 2 roof hatches or one long roof hatch. A quick search brought up this from http://www.victorianrailways.net: The early GH's had two discharge doors and two roof hatches, the vast majority had one discharge door and one long roof hatch. It is not known if any 2 door GH's were converted to a single door. Does anyone know if this is true? Also does this mean that there was probably no GH's with two roof hatches and a single door. If so how come auscision are offering a version with these features, has anyone kit build/scratch built the two door variant.


Update: Auscision's GH page has a picture of a single door GH with 2 roof hatches. So maybe there was GH's with two roof hatches and a single door, but was it common?


Thanks in advance.




P.S would this be better of in the Victorian section, i wasn't sure because it is also about modeling variants of the GH wagon not just prototype information.

Have a check through Peter Vincent and Rob O'regan's websites, there's quite a catalogue of GH prototype photos, some drawings and some limited batch information. The photos are your best bet. Pretty sure I built a two hatch, two chute model and I looked at the prototype very closely to do so, if I couldn't find solid evidence for it, I wouldn't have gone to the trouble to make the model.
