Look Around Getting Down Safety slogan

62 was rebuilt at the Aberdeen Car Shop into a bay window configuration in 1967
and 66 was converted the same way in 1968.

It was felt that the bay window configuration would provide better visibility for train inspections.

Van 62 spent a large amount of time in Welland assigned to the Day Port Assignment, while Van 66 was assigned to the American Hoist (X-755). In 1983, vandals set fire to 66 at Kinnear Yard and the gutted remains were sold to the
Port Stanley Terminal Rly. 62 was reassigned to the Amercian Hoist and one of the 80 series vans assigned to Welland.
