History and use
This wooden model is believed to have been built during the 1950s for display at a Queensland Industries Fair promoting both Queensland Railways' dieselisation plans and the "Sunlander" air-conditioned train service between Brisbane and Cairns. The paint scheme of the model was updated during the 1970s to incorporate the new Queensland Railways "QR" logo for further public display.
