Motorised Inspection Car 4
Commonwealth Railways - Standard Gauge
Basically a 1941 Maple Leaf Chevrolet, MIC 4 was used as a Commonwealth Railways standard gauge inspection and pay car. Fitted with steel railway wheels it ran initially on the lines from Port Augusta to Woomera and Cook and was equipped with a hydraulic turntable for reversing.
Originally donated to Steamtown Peterborough in 1978, it was in turn donated to the museum in 1980.
