It sounds like Rod Young drove a train or two from Seymour area that was headed for Darwin which would be more recent years (SG to Darwin opened in '03) and SG.  I can only imagine that it was loaded at the passing loop immediately north of Seymour direct from road transport to flat wagons.  Maybe that happened more than I thought in earlier years.  Still, they wouldn't have used TE flats.

Well I got that wrong about not TE flats.  SG only though due to the lack of an X in the wagon code.

Hi All;
l found my link to the question asked.

http://www.railpage.com.au/f-t11372170.htm

TEs did run in Victoria along with other codes for tank transport.

Hope this helps and the link works.

The first batch of Centurion tanks arrived at Melbourne in 1951 which begs the question of which wagons they were on going to Puckka (I assume they went to Puckka or maybe Bandiania for receipt prior to being issued).

They've filled an obvious hole with that U van. Kudos to SDS.

Photos on the SDS web site (which I have seen elsewhere) show a Centurion being unloaded from MV JOHN LYRAS and placed on TE 11201, which appears to be in as new condition.  No idea which delivery batch the tank being unloaded was from.

Just noticed a strange thing.  That number, TE 11201, is not amongst the six numbers on offer from SDS.  I thought there were only six of these wagons.  Or is my eye sight astray and the photo shows 11200?

Best regards,
John

Page 50 of the October AMRM suggests that the VR operated Tulloch 10,000 gallon tankers as VTQF and ATBL.  The SDS website says they are V/Line era only which I believe is correct.

It should also be noted that Steam Era Models do replacement wheels for "wobbly wheels" on the SDS modesl four-wheelers. See the Steam Era Models site for details.

3/11/13 update. "The 1980s Pack C and the Fuel Block trains are now in stock and this concludes our previously advertised Rail Tank Car Project. ".
A gallery of all the tank cars produced has been added at http://sdsmodels.com.au/rtcgal.htm , quite an impressive collection.

Hmmm, anybody got a rough idea of when those fridge containers would have been introduced?

summary from "railway freight wagons in NSW 1982 / John Beckhaus":
100 x SRC in 1980/81 (joint NSW / QR ownership)
100 x QRC in 1982/83 (QR ownership)
160 x LRC, photos confirm in service by 1982.

Those QR RACE containers are tempting, albeit I wouldn't think they would've made their way as far as Vic? Who cares, I like the look of them! lol Laughing
