Standard Waddingtons-Drewry railcar DP15. DP15, along with DP16, was the first of the "big" railcars, so called because it had a much larger 150hp Gardner 6L3 engine where as the earlier units had the small 6LW of 100hp. The earlier units (DP11 to DP14) looked identical. All these railcars were built for country and branch line services. They ended up in Hobart suburban which they weren't really suited to. DP15 is at the Tasmania Transport Museum while DP16 went to the Don River Railway where it was scrapped.
