These were built for use as motor quadricycles, for both broad and narrow-gauge use. Most of these units had Villiers motors fitted with a few examples, including this unit, having motors built at the Islington Workshops of the South Australian Railways. The storage trolley was used to hold the tools used by staff repairing the line and communications wires. Most people consider this type of car to be very dangerous as it was easy to incorrectly set the wheels and cause the unit to derail at high speed.
