South Australian, Commonwealth and Australian National Railways Rollingstock Record Cards. These were large cardboard cards, one per vehicle, maintained by the workshops that showed all major alterations and repairs done to that vehicle. They are generally a lot more accurate than the computerised "TIMS" records. See the "TIMS" reference for more details.

Information extracted from Australian Nationals Computerised Traffic Information Management System (TIMS) The records that have been extracted from TIMS, and the Computerised Wagon Monitoring System (WMS), are not always very accurate. Frequently significant alterations did not make it into the system. An example is the upgrade of "Ghan" cars. These cars only show the date of the work order for modifications being issued in 1988 with very little information about when the actual work took place. For some cars this was not until 18 months later. Port Augusta still maintained paper based manual rollingstock record cards of changes long after they supposedly moved over to "TIMS", so generally "TIMS" shows the date the work was approved/proposed rather than when it was actually carried out.
