MSC Shipping Containers

A few new MSC shipping containers on the Visy train the other day. 

The brown ones with black MSC look odd, and are Florens lease containers.   

FFAU marked 45G1 container.

Another FFAU marked 45G1 container.

MSMU is a new code for MSC container.  This one is very new!

Snapped this the other day and noticed that maybe it is a shout-out to my Blog??

QLD 2020 - Linfox Containers

I spent some time around Brisbane during Christmas 2020 and haven't posted any shots so far.  Here is a selection of Linfox boxes, may of which were previously Aurizon, pus a few other bits and pieces.

Class leader 2801 at Dakabin

ABLK bulker.

Another ABLK bulker and a former QRN 40ft Seacell

A former Aurizon 40+ Reefer and a 10ft side door loaded on a BCZY.

A 20+ ATRF reefer and another seacell loaded on a BEZY.

Another AFRF 40+ Reefer plus a former QRN QLST side door.

Double stacked K&S KTES class steel carriers.  From memory, these units have extendable ends to go out several more feet in length.

Recently repainted QREC 707156-4.  Based on the number, this was probably a former SCF bulk container.  

Seacell QRFE 400825-8.  These are starting to get a bit tired.

Another former SCF container, QRNG 707251-8, which are used for glass traffic.

Reefer QRRF 480035-0.  This is possibly a lease unit so hasn't been marked with the Linfox branding.

Another bulker, QRTBS 01262-5.  The fifth letter being 'S' stood for 'Spuds' as they carried potatoes.  The 'S' went over the top of the first number in the container code.   

A former Intermodal Solutions side door, this one is now owned by Royal Wolf.  This would have formerly been an ISHU box.

A CS Leasing SLZU flatrack set up for carrying steel traffic.

Paint Out

 A former CGM CMA box which has been sold.  A nice patch out/paint out for the modellers.

SSR CLF 3 - Space Ghost

With ICE radio now fitted, CLF3 made a rare appearance on the SSR Grey grain train the other week due to a loco swap to allow the Green grain train to run down the Illawarra Mountain.  

Trailing unit in the combo was CLF1 painted in SSR livery.

SNF Australia Tank

Haven't seen these SNF tanks around much at all, so was please to get this SNFU ISO tank the other day.  This one is 100113 which suggests there may be at least 13 of them!  

The side ribs are an interesting feature of this tank.

SLZU Block

Following the Qube derailment on the Illawarra Mountain in December 2020 and the destruction of 39 grain hoppers, Qube have resorted to moving bulk grain in bulk containers.

The CS Leasing SLZU containers have generally been running as a block from western NSW to Port Kembla.  

The other day on 3112, it appeared that a number were being moved from the south to Sydney for transfer.

CQMY 3079 with a solid block of four SLZU 511 series containers.  These are 2EG9 bulk type.

A bit of an oddity to get a general domestic box between two shipping containers.

Seaco SeaPC+

These have been around for a little while but have evaded me on the rail.  

Seaco have called their pallet-wide (CPC) containers SeaPC+.  There are some 40ft versions getting around as well.

This one is coded SBOU rather than the more common SEGU Seaco BIC code.
