Steel goods brake vans built by the South Australian Railways as "8300" type brakevans, numbered from 8300 to 8394. The first brakevan (8300) entered service in February 1947 and the last (8394) entered service December 1971.

The first order of 14 brakevan was built in 1947, being all steel with wooden doors. Two goods compartments are located either side of central guards compartment, fitted with seat, desk, toilet and observation viewing ports. To one side of the guards compartment is a small passenger compartment.

In 1961 the South Australian Railways commenced building the remainder of the class numbered 8314 to 8394. The design was modified slightly, producing a narrower vehicle that could run in Victoria. The brakevans lack end communication doors, preventing their use on passenger trains. Brakevans 8364 to 8374 and 8393 to 8394 were built for standard gauge, with the rest being issued on broad gauge.

The "8300" class brake vans were recoded "AVAY" in 1982. This resulted in all vans being renumbered, i.e "8300" to "AVAY 1", etc.. Vans on standard gauge did not use this number exchange system, instead they were given vacant road numbers from the standard gauge passenger list. Thus when you get into the higher road numbers the mapping from "8300" to "AVAY" becomes a little irregular.
