LYGU Folding Container

Managed to grab this on PS7 this morning.  It looks like a normal 45G1 container but has been modified so the sides fold down like a stage, in three equal lengths.

Something different.  The straps are probably a safety measure.

ISO Tanks

Scored a heap of ISO tanks on PN's MB4 service a couple of weeks back.

Qube's 1311 at Bowning

On the way home from a trip down south, I managed the time for a shot of Qube's 1311 'paper train' coming through the old station at Bowning.

Unit 48 - Reefer

While it doesn't look brand-spanking new, it probably isn't that old.  

This is Unit 48's PVDU reefer, numbered 483001-1, so is probably a prototype.

Other Unit48 containers (generals and curtain siders) are running around the country as can be seen here and here.

LDP Transfer

Some LDPs were transferred last week with PN after being on hire to SCT for quite a few months.  

An NR/AN/NR/LDP/LDP Combo on MB4 at Aylmerton.

The LDPs, 004 and 003.  

An usual cross shot of a 60 year old 42 class and LDP004.

Viridian Glass open top CICU 814156-8.

A pair of wells, now owned by PN.  Here is CQWY 5027.

A new Grace removalist container, GRRU 231187-8.

A new Kent removalist container KENU 919185-0.  This container has doors at both ends.

Smark gas ISO tank SMAU 888085-4.

Bulk Loading Railroad Transport

I haven't photoed one of these from above before, and was surprised to see a top loading hatch.

RRTU 004093-9 is a 4FG9 coded box.  I don't think the top loading would work very well considering the angle of repose for most product, but still could be handy if not required to fill to the brim.

Toll TIHH Half Height

Toll TIHH 40218 is a 'half' height curtain sider.  This one has been repainted and has a new logo curtain.  First time I have seen it, but has been around for quite a few months apparently.

NREC 1200 Gensets Run Again

After the failure of a mainline loco, the pari of 1200s were used to get a grain train from Cootamundra to Maldon last week.

Here they are at Mittagong.

CF4412 - Black Caviar

Black Caviar continues to grace the rails between Port Botany and Goulburn on SRS services.

Here is it last week coming through Aylmerton, with the wattle in full bloom.
