VHAF with 70T bogies!

Here is one interesting wagon I missed posting.   Taken at Carrington on 2/5, the second wagon is now VHAF 166.  The VHAF class has a two pipe arrangement making them suitable for decending steep grades in NSW.  Interestingly, this wagon was a former VHGY, and as such, is fitted with 70T bogies - maybe a first, or certainly a recent addition to the VHAF class.  Historically, the VHAF class have been fitted with VXSC 50T exchange bogies.

Also worthy of mentioning is the end hopper colours.  Note the front hopper is green with original yellow ends, and the second hopper is blue with green ends.
