ELX Wagons with Ribbed Indentation inside

Does anyone know which manufacturer makes the VR ELX Wagons with the ribbed indentation inside the wagon?  I think I saw a while ago such wagon in HO Scale but I cannot remember.

Are you seeking kits or RTR?

Hi Allan

G'day Shelton,
Could they be the rib sided ones Austrains did?
See https://web.archive.org/web/20100316160316/http://www.austrains.com.au/elxwagon.html

I can't see shots inside the wagon though, but others in the know, may know.
I reckon this web archive is great for looking up what manufacturers have made over the years.

I have seen another VR modellers website where almost all the HO scale models produced of wagons and locos have been listed. I can't remember it off hand but a search of VR modelling may yield something.

Cheers,

Hi
It's not the Austrains ones as I have some of them and they don't have the indentation inside the wagons.
Thanks

Unfortunately not. AMK Design produced a HO scale ELX kit using ABS milled sides and floor, with interior ribbing detail. They were circulating around 8-10 years ago.

Years back "The Model Centre" in Adelaide put out a resin kit for the ELX SAR and VR with inside detail under the EMCE brand, I have a couple of them from back then, the moulds for these wagons eventually were purchased and added to the BGB range. But I have not seen any kits from them for ages now. These kits were the bee's knees back then, but today they look a little on the rough side against RTR models made in China.

Here is a old EMCE  ELX kit this one is the South Australian version but the VR version was the same inside. This one is getting a spruce up and just happened to be on my work bench.
