Still catching up - thankfully this week looks to be pretty wet, and I'm not travelling, so I should be able to catch up on the last 10 days of photos.
6NY3 with a few 5-packs of containers up front. This is pretty common, with the wagons being detached at Goobang Jct or Spencer Jct for on-forwarding on an SP intermodal job.
An interesting container was on the lead of NY3. Anew SCF Rail Container with orange doors. Not sure if these are the ones made from plastic, but they ceratinly stand out.
More ROQF and ROHF ore concentrate wagons are turning up carting scrap/slag from Whyalla to Port Kembla. Complimenting the usual ROBX and RCDX wagons is ROQF 334, without any noticable tears in the wall skin, unlike some others!
Plate steel wagon RKXF 60152.
Out of gauge plate steel wagon RRYY 7085.
NR85 was the trailing unit on 5MB4.
5 of a kind, on RRYY 30.
RQZY 7036. I haven't seen the articulated wells (7004, 7007 and 7083) for a few weeks, and have noticed more RRRY and RQZY/RRZY well sets on MB/BM services.
A few more wagon photos from Broadmeadow on 19 May.
120t NHYH wagon heading south on Railcorp track to Teralba Colliery.
Ceva(?) container HBT307 in a fresh lime green. Previous HBT containers have been in the standard TNT orange.
Another blast from the past - RRKY 2694, fitted with Aligned bogies and still sporting the CR logo. The only modern feature is the PN yellow stripe on the side sill.
5-pack RRYY 22 with a load of Toll and Patrick cartainers. Worth noting is the AB container at the front with the same flat roof as all the Patrick containers. Many of the Toll cartainers seen on the east coasr are MB type with the mansard roof.
A few interesting wagons were photoed in Braodmeadow last week.
QHBF 41625 - Former Narrow Gauge VAKM, now stored at Casino.
QHBF 40647 - NO idea why QRN overhauled this wagon, but I'm not a fan of the colour.
WA born WOAX 33073, complete with end hatches.
SQGF 537 with XF type bogies and a interesting pair of concentrate containers. The SQGF class are fitted with almost every version of X type imaginable, including XG, XH, XF, XL, and even some interstate bogies from Vic and SA.
MB7 with a pair of dirty LDPs coming through the Relief Road.
