DOUBLE-CIRCLE 'SKELETON' TYPES WITH TOWN-NAME: '[GT] STHRN UP TRAIN/JA9/06/VIC' largely superb large-part strike on 1d pink. Used on TPO 7 (2) on the South Gippsland Line; recorded for one month only. One of the great rarities of Victorian TPO markings.
DOUBLE-CIRCLE 'SKELETON' TYPES WITH TOWN-NAME: 'ST KILDA RAILWAY/JA31/06/VIC' very fine strike on 1d pink on PPC. Ex Hugh Freeman. [The only recorded example. This is an excellent example of how improper setting of the type within the collar would produce unsatisfactory results: only the letters 'S K Y' are clear and most letters are totally absent]
