The KSA cattle wagons were introduced to the Queensland Railways from 1957.
The first batch of 100 wagons was successful in replacing the ageing fleet of K class timber cattle wagons and a further 4 batches were entered into traffic over the following 18 years.
These finely detailed models represent the second batch of wagons, introduced in 1961-62.
Three further batches were later produced, with the last two batches being built to this design between 1973 and 1975.
These models represent the KSA wagons, as they ran from the mid 1970s until their retirement around the year 2000.
