Victorian Grain Hoppers

Plenty of Victorian grain hoppers ahve been transferred to NSW recently.  Sighting in Carrington (Newcastle) on 2/5/12 were two examples of the common types.

VHGF 344 fitted with 50t exchange bogies.  The wagon carries an 'F' as it is not fitted with a grade control vavle or exhaust choke.  The bogies are however, fully gauge exchangeable. 

VHGY 259 is quite similar to the VHGF above but is fitted with 70T Ride Control bogies and constant contact sidebearers for high speed operation (not that you would find that in many parts of NSW!)
