Two former South African Railways DZ Flat Wagons have been converted to rail carrying bolster wagons. The bolster assemblies are able to swivel to allow for track curvature. WHR/FR type couplers are fitted at the outer ends of the set, but SAR type couplers are retained at the inner ends and the wagons joined by a spacing bar, to allow sufficient length to carry rails.

The spacing bar also carries the continuous brake pipe.
