We all take pics of whats on the noisy end of trains BUT few of us take the time to photo Wagons or Containers of which there is a huge variety.
Most of our modelers on here look with little luck for these type of pics so i thought we should have a thread to help them out.
This INCLUDES infrastructure wagons/containers.
Here are a few from today to kick it off.
TOLL car carrying containers on there special low level 5 packs TRAY.
Royal Wolf leasing.
TOLL Tanktainer (foodstuffs)
WNA/WNB type high speed bogie(low level type) under a RQJW.
Edited to fix my lousy spelling. Embarassed

Good idea Greg, a good thread.

Right, this isn't like the "normal" Australian fair, this is narrow gauge Tasmanian style.
Here is some photos.

The 1970's era wagons rebuild from a 40' to 60'.

I think this is an ex South Australian wagons.

Old log wagons rebuilt into container wagons. Again, 1970's era.

QM class wagon. I think another South Australian export

NSW type wagon. Classed QLE, they were R something arather, 4 letter code.

And this last gem, made by Comeng, X Class concentrate wagon.

I've only got one photo of flat wagons here in SA and this is a conversion anyway from a c.1925 ex SAR FB class flat wagon into a shunting fender. Yes, that is a 4 wheel shunting fender upturned and bolted on top!

There are several 'unmodified' FB class in storage at Dry Creek still as well as a few ex CR 40' narrow gauge flats, a few 75' flats converted from AOOX wagons in addition to a host of other 'junk'.

Now if someone would just post images of the FreightLink rolling stock. Ones at right angles would be good! Very Happy

My favorite container wagons are from NSWSRA: RQSY/RQGY/RQBY & RQJW/RQMW.

Wasn't there a thread in the model railway forum on a similar basis to this?
Anyway here are my collection wagons and containers.

You are probably right, there would have been similar threads at Model Rail a number of times. I would imagine there have been similar requests on the simulator pages as well for MSTS and requests in photography and under the various state and operator threads.

Maybe the answer is to create a photo link "sticky" on "locomotives and rolling stock" and "infrastructure" with reminders on all the other thread groups to post the images there and that posting of images eleswhere will be moved/removed.

Also create permanent (in the sense it remains top of the sub-group list) create locomotive and rolling stock photographs threads within "loco's and rolling stock".

Just a thought,

I'm quite interested in wagons and rolling stock...

...and not keen for this thread to die.

Tanktainers seem on a BM4 service at Menangle

NDQF type spoil wagon with two spoil bins sitting on it at Chullora awaiting attention for whatever reason. The two spoil bins can be lifted off and the wagon used for containers if desired, so I am told Smile

Great detail photos of what I think is a pretty interesting wagon, Greg. And thanks for bumping this thread, I'd forgotten about it.

For those of you who didn't see the notice in the Model Railway forum. I have created a "resources" section on my website that has, at this stage, photos of NSW and Qld bogies (both incomplete collections), containers (one page of which is still missing) and historical photos from the central west of NSW. There are plans for other sections as well once I get around to it.

Roger, I didn't see your notice either - those Tanktainer photos in particular may come in quite handy.

I took these at Carrington yesterday i am pretty sure some one else has posted his pics of this wagon on RP but not in this thread so here they are.

Mostly showing the bogies as they had my attention being a ex car and wagon examiner/fitter.
