Luxury 1964 Railway Carriage for sale
Vintage tiny home, craftsman refurbished
Imagine owning and living in a piece of history
We are offering you the chance of a lifetime to live in a piece of history: an exquisitely refurbished Camp Wagon from the steam era of Queensland Rail. One of the last wagons of her type, she was built for Queensland Railways in 1964 and christened CW317.
One of the very few carriages built to be lived in from the word go, she was our home for seven years; we reveled and relaxed in the uniqueness of our classy yet compact “mobile home”, not realizing we were forerunners of today’s tiny home movement.

- Double bed with cypress flitch bedhead
- Red cedar-leg table with rare Afzelia flitch top
- Sink unit made with cypress flitch
