Dominating NRs

A few jobs from late January, where NRs dominated the traffic past my place.

NR15 leading 2196 Peppertree stone train, with NR116 on the rear in WDP mode.

NR11/77 leading PS7.

PNXD 0015 should a rather unusual pattern on the side.  Looks like something has been welded or attached to the side of the container.

NR102/96 lead NY3

Recently refurbished RKDF 20266.  These may be recoded RKBY in the near future.

RKEF 170.

RKFX 9 with recent repairs (see the bright green touch ups), plus some new yellow brackets welded near the previous door hinges.

RKHF 20535 is similar in style to the fresh RKDF.

ROOX 2622 still in CR red and with new yellow brackets, the same as the RKFX.  This wagon should be an RKOX as the doors have been removed.

Another former open wagon, still coded ROOX 3081 and in CR red.  

RQNW 5 with WN two-piece bogies.

Another RQNW (10) but with Aligned bogies.

RQNW 15 also has aligned bogies.  I haven't seen jumbo wagons carrying these blue half heights.  Must have been all that was available.

20+ Reefer - Toll TSDR 200011

Shot this 20 PLUS Toll reefer on MB4.  This is the first 'new' repaint of a TSDR reefer I have seen.  I shot this same box back in 2012 in the Old Livery.  

Prior to the Toll Shipping logo, the original livery was large TOLL letters (similar to the new livery) but the logo was in the toll yellow and lighter green.

These boxes are at least 10 years old, and probably closer to 15 years.  They are regulars between Tassie and Brisbane,.

Some containers in this 'part 2'.

A PN curtain sider PNXM 5214.

Marked with QRN, this 40+ reefer is QRRF 480066. 

48ft Sadleirs RCS 4801.

Triple tanks on RQKY 2693 with aligned bogies.

7SP5 had two RV blue butter boxes near the back of the consist.  Bit of a strange one!

RWTA 206785 has an unusual end panel.

Another Royal Wolf container, RWTU 903109.

Scotts reefer SRR 059.

TCAU 800236.

An interesting load was this A trailer from a b-double.  Looks to be a former tipper with everything above the floor removed (maybe post accident).
