Road Trip

Drove from Brisbane to Singleton, via Moree, and sighted a few interesting wagons which are shown below:

LSR Shunter truck at Warwick QLD

VAOG 34211 and about 20 more are stored at Inglewood, out near Goondiwindi. This is a former coal hopper fitted with a grain lid.

The only thing in Moree was XGAY 0006. Most of the XGAYs were parked at Werris Creek, with another at Carrington.

Along woith a rake of NGVF grain hoppers, about 5 NTOF oil tankers are stored at Narrabri. Here NTOF 1294 still has Cargill logos, but the Freightcorp has been painted out.

Gunnedah is a large depot for Manildra Group. Here MHGX 41 is seen in flour duties, and still carried the original Manildra Harwood Sugars lettering, which was placed on the wagons in preparation for a sugar contract that didn't eventuate. Note the weathered colour of this hopper from carrying flour. Also note the vibrator marks on the side of the hopper, where it is placed assist in the unloading of the flour.

Much cleaner MHGX 116, parked with a few others. Due to the different door configuration on the high numbered wagons, this particular wagon is used in grain traffic.

The sun sets over 48121 and 8006 at Werris Creek.
