AOOY Wagon with BG bogies for the AFGF's

Location: If it isn't obvious by now, it should be.
The AFGF's have started appearing on the POTA Deniliquin service along with AQPY's, and CQRX's. Numbers I have so far are 1639 F (the red one with sideframes), 3 Q (black) and 46 G (faded AN green). There is another one that I couldn't get a photo of.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A couple of CQOY's also found their way onto the service for a while, though all three were missing from today's (22/8/11) run.
 


While at Bendigo North, VOFX 1008 Y, stacked CFTX's and some ZZMA's were observed inside the compound.

It has to be said that this thread has invaluable information for modellers - a big thank you to those that have contributed. In an effort to give back a little, I have posted a series on my blog of NSW spoil wagons - photographically not great, but hopefully useful material for modellers.

If anyone can fill in the gaps on the origins of the second type of NDCH or the NDMX it would be appreciated.

Hi to all. Here are some of the colourful RQEY two packs bouncing around on the MC3/CM3 at the moment.

There is actually 3 NDCH/NDCF's
Type 1 ex NSWGR "BD" Cut Down due to overloading
Type 2 ex NSWGR "G/GP" Cut Down due to overloading
Type 3 ex NSWGR "BDL/NOBX" Cut Down due to overloading and doors removed, these also retain original ribbed side panels.

NDMX's are also ex NSWGR "BDL/NOBX" will all ribbed panels replaced and cut down.

Thanks for the feedback, but are you sure on your type 1? The NDNF and NDBF I understand to be ex BD, but the shorter version of the NDCH looks to have a different underframe.

Your type 2 I have down as the NDCF, but I separated it in the blog posts.  Wink

I'll update the NDMX post.
EDIT - I just noticed.the classified length of the NOBX is 14.1m where the NDMX code board shows 14.9m - were theym lengthened?

EDIT 2 - just found this - http://www.comrails.com/tims/rs_wndc.html#NDCH002545  - a shorter NDCH shown as ex NOGF

NDMX's aren't NOBX's. Not sure what they are, I'll keep trying to figure it out.

I have seen all 3 coded NDCH, at seperate times, but looks like they have been obviously changed to reflect the actual wagon.

Remember the "F" only reflects the bogies, so some NDCH's have changed Data boards to reflect bogie change.

So for G/GP stlyle NDCH's could or well been NOGF/HF, spose we have to look underneath and see if they had drop doors, which i assume are welded shut?

I think the thing with the NDMX's is the Length is calculated over couplings which ironically is 14.9m.


NDMX's aren't NOBX's. Not sure what they are, I'll keep trying to figure it out.

I think you will always come back to the NOBX, only wagon that fits length! Plus note the obvious underframe!

I think you are right - I found an old photo of NDMX 1813B a friend gave me (not mine to post unfortunately) - it has a small plate (though larger that the standard plate) on it that is either 33519 or 33619 - both numbers trace back to NOBXs.

The length is what threw me - I gather there is inconsistency in how wagons are measured (over headstocks, over couplers, etc)? Looking back through photos, I have seen 13.1m on a few (ex NOBX) NDCH codeboards, 14.2m on NDCH 2526T, 15m on NDCH 2089N, 14.1m on the Comrails site for the NOBX, and it's 14.9m on the NDMX codeboards.

Now for the next puzzle - what is an NDVF recycled from? I just stumbled across this pic - http://www.flickr.com/photos/83791520@N00/4588121121/in/photostream/

Some useful perway vehicle shots from this person.

Also I know 20 of the 21 NQJXs came from NOBXs, but what about the NDQF?

Simon notice the cutouts on the headstock of the spoil wagon behind the spoil flat thats how you can tell it was a GP wagon thats the spindle shaft you can see that used to have a wheel to control the drop doors.

I've decided to note down all of the AQPY numbers that I've seen on the POTA Deniliquin train (the orange GWA owned flats), as well as taking pics of them. Numbers I've seen so far are 4009-M, 2537-S, 4179-G, 2982-S, 4151-K, 4180-F, 4076-S, 2571-T, 2873-M, 4079-G, 3005-Q, 2308-M, 2948-C, 4142-L, 2916-V, 3928-H, 2322-U, 2942-J and 2886-B: a total of 19 AQPY's on the Broad Gauge.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


These AQPY's were all on today's (10/10/11) run.

This is a old Vacuumed Braked WAGR flat wagon, the have a couple fleets for Rail. The coding is QUS and as you can see its had new cranes and rail holding equipment added to it.
