Espee train 2170 ran a transfer last weekend from Goulburn Workshops to Chollora, transferring 6 x CQQY wagons for PN to transfer to Bluebird Workshops in Adelaide.
These wagons have been modified in a similar fashio to the AFKY/AKTY flats that were used on the Alice Springs to Darwin construction trains. They can carry three sets of sleepers and probably enough rail down each side.
The wagons were all modified in a similar manner, and were in various stages of painting.
A few local shots of MB4 this morning at Aylmerton.
Ghan NR75 leading a slightly late running MB4.
Cab shot of NR75.
RQEY 1932. THe Toll Shipping box has had a decent repair recently.
RQEY 1958 with the more flouro yellow PN repaint, and loaded with an new Toll Shipping box. Interestingly these still carry the code for Brambles shipping.
RQFY 130 with a colourful paint out shipping box and a Sadleirs tank.
South Australian built RRGY 7141 with a mix of containers.
Chinese built RRQY 8339 with a similar mox of containers.
An RRYY loaded with cartainers. This shot caught my eye due to the wear, tear and fading on the various boxes. The toll box has patch outs, and the fourth Patrick box is well faded to am almost pink colour. The logo on the leading box is also pretty shabby.
