Keep informed with professional quality images of interesting rollingstock from around Australia.
I note the 24ft container has twistlocks at 6 positions on each side, when a normal container has only. I guess this allows the container to be loaded with a single 4ft overhang on one side, or a 2ft overhang on both sides. What wagons are they usually loaded onto? The 5 pack pictured looks like it has 48ft platforms.
G'day Marcus,You are correct. The multiple positions allow the container to be mounted with different overhangs. A lot of 48ft containers and reefer container are similar, to allow them to be centrally loaded on a 5-pack platform, or butted up to the end of a 60ft or 80ft wagon.The 24ft containers are part of the Trailerail replacement program, and as a result only ever seem to travel on 48ft 5-packs, mainly RQQY and RRQY. They normally travel in pairs but I have seen 4805 by itself a few times now. Cheers
