What a Load of Garbage

There is a lot of waste moving from NSW to QLD by rail due to no tax or levy, and this has been highlighted in news and current affairs programs in recent months.  This PN job through Broadmeadow had an interesting selection of waste containers as part of the load. 

An unidentified 42U1 open top container.

A second hand shipping box, sold through ANL in another 42U1 open top.

Now marked as EPEB, this is a 22U1 box.

Formerly a Triton lease 22U1 box, the sides are now painted grey and marked with EPE and coded EPEB.

Formerly a Florens lease container, now also marked EPEB.

A new build, one of about 200 for EPE, is EPEU 236053-6 and is a 25U0 type open top container.  These are similar to the scrap steel containers used by Bluescope on PN trains.  The external bracing allows the inner walls to be smooth to avoid hangup of product.

A GOAU 42U1 open top.  The sides are well bashed and stained.

Another GOAU open top, marked with a W2R logo.  Interestingly this box is riding on a regular steel allocated RKLY wagon. 

Another GOAU 42U1 box.  These are common on other services in Australia.

I haven't seen this code before, KUDU.

Another rare code, OTMU, riding atop a Steelink RKLY.

A well worn blue 42U1.

A blue Titan 22U1, numbered 860285-1 

A green Titan 22U1, numbered 860307-7 riding on an RKMY. 

A pair of green Titan 22U1s, riding on an RKMY. 

Not an open top but marked for W2R, This blue Titan container is TITU 990429-1.

A leased Triton (probably former lease) TRIU 052067-0.

This is a 22U1 type container, but is quite old as it still carried the old type code of US 2251.  This is a TRLU lease container.
