Qube Energy

Often there are days or trips where I can end up with 20 or 30 images that I find interesting and process in Photoshop with the intent to share., however the sheer volume and time it takes often means that only a small proportion of my shots are shown.

Here is one I found from back in January.  It is a repainted GVCU open top container repainted in Qube Energy livery.  I recall seeing some of these down at Port of Melbourne recently.

Cootamundra Loco - Graincorp 48 class

Got a few quick shots at Cootamundra loco this week.  Always like seeing teh light blue Graincorp 48200 class.

A branchline set of quad 48200 class.

48205 with some Aboriginal artwork.

Repainted 48213.

Showing the old road number of 48148, GNC 48214 is looking a little tired.

48215 not looking much better.

A decent stabling of 81 class, most likely due to the down turn in export grain at the moment.

OOCL Block Loads

A couple of OOCL reefer block loads on Qube's 1311 service last week.

Qube owned LQAY with a 22R1 and 45R1 OOCL reefer.

A block load of OOCL 22R1 reefers on a CFCLA leased CQMY.

Qube 3112

Some shots of a late running Qube 3112 service passing through Spaniards near Menangle early one morning.

A GESU 22R1 reefer with Marfret markings.  Marfret are a small shipping line (ranked 63rd in size).  This container is either off lease or in an alliance pool with a larger shipping line such as Maersk, ONE, or OOCL.

Ex Hanjin Boxes

Sighted a few ex Hanjin shipping containers today.  Some are easier to pick than others. 

Ex 45G1 boxes with painted out name and logo.  These are now coded AXIU for Axis/Textainer leasing.

Another AXIU paint out, but with a nicer shade of blue.

This one is only distinguished as a ex Hanjin box since it still carried the HJCU code on the side.

LDP005 Progress Rail

I thought it would be a good idea to get some coverage of the first trip in NSW of LDP 005 in the Progress Rail livery.

Here it is this morning coming through Tahmoor.

Linfox DRC Container

Former Boxcar 48ft container, DRC 329 is now painted white for Linfox.  There aren't too many of these left in service, and date back to the 1990s.

Sofrana 22G1 Container (SOFU)

I haven't seen a Sofrana box before and this one was on PS6 last week.

The container is an export 22G1 type and carried the code SOFU.  I Sofrana is part of ANL which is owned by CMA CGM.

Lucky Cross

A total fluke the other day with this track speed running cross of 8183 on service 2126 crossing QBX 001 on service 1311 at Bargo.  

Right place at  the right time.

Qube's SM7

Another SM7 service led by a single QBX and less than half loaded.

Here is it at Mittagong this afternoon.
