Happy New Year

Firstly, Happy New Year to one and all.  2014 has been a busy year, but I have somehow managed to Blog better than one Blog every five days on average.

To my fellow bloggers, keep the posts coming in 2015!

Here is my final shot for 2014.  It was taken a few weeks back and is of a rare tank which has eluded me for some time.

40ft Tank (quite rare) EXFU 144708 is used on the Tarago garbage train to transfer liquids for waste disposal, similar to the grey containers that transfer solid waste.

The tank is a 40T6 type and has a Gross of 34,000kg and a payload of 29,700kg.  It is quite a small diameter.

It was loaded onto regular garbo wagon NQHX 14496.

Enjoy, and Happy New Year - 2015!

Spent a morning at both Morayfield and Narangba in the north of Brisbane.

There was a pretty good mix of different suburban and interurban sets, including ICE set 151, which has quite a distinctive front end.

The Sun has Appeared! Aurizon 7MB7

The unusual site of blue skies led me out trackside this morning, capturing Aurizon 7MB7.

6025 leads LDP002 at Aylmerton.

SCT van ABSY 2473.  This one is well weathered in brown.

Another van, ABSY 2814, and this one has a well worn red stripe.

The other regular van variant on the service are PBGYs.  This one is 0050.

Aurizon bulk container ABLK 201201.

An AUCU Austrans container on CQGY 519.

CQMY 3019 with a pair of Keny KENU moving containers.

Former narrow gauge QQAY 47800 with a McColls tank and a Royal Wolf 20fter.

One of only a handful of Aurizon 80ft wagons, QQMY 22006 is loaded with a single 40ft container.

A recently rebranded SCF reefer.  

On the first platform of a QQLY 5-pack, is a Wridgways container and a tanktainer with Cummins Adblue markings.
