It is uncertain whether this REO was originally one of the five WA Government Tramways units, or a sixth unit (one source states that six Buda diesel-engined REOs were purchased by the Government Tramways, which at that stage was not an independant entity but was under WAGR control)
May have been the REO which replaced WAGT Ford V8 (5) on the Perth-Kojonup service,
9 Nov 1942   
Re-engined with Perkins P6 diesel
May have been the bus used to inaugurate the Northam-Toodyay via Clackline service
10 Sep 1946   
If so, it was also operated as a school bus between Mokine, Spensers Brook, Muresk and Northam under contract to the Education Department
According to WAGR Annual Report, withdrawn & sold
by30 Jun 1950
