Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The H type carriages are an interurban passenger carriage used on the railways of Victoria, Australia. Fitted with economy class only high density 2+3 seating, they are exclusively used on short distance interurban services with V/Line. Between 1983 and 1992 Clyde Engineering converted 59 cars from early Harris suburban Electric Multiple Units to replace the last of the older wooden carriage stock They had been ordered after the success of the 1981 New Deal in increasing patronage. The four 'MTH' variants were originally converted for use with the DRC railcars until the early 1990s, being provided with underfloor generators. They were then used as locomotive hauled carriages on the unelectrified suburban Stony Point line operated by Connex Melbourne until 26 April 2008 when Sprinter trains were introduced on the route instead. Currently, MTH 102 is being converted to an inspection car for Metro Trains Melbourne, while the remaining three MTH cars are stored, along with BIH 181 at Newport Workshops.
