Is ZOAF101 on a historic run or is it actually in service with those plain bearing bogies? I thought roller bearings took over once the last 4-wheeler went to the crusher in the early 1980s.

I have no idea what the case is with the wagon. It seems never to have been used, and looks to have spent its time stored at various locations. As for the bogies, they were probably spare, and rather than putting them under a revenue earning wagon, they were put under it, with the roller bearing bogies from the ZOAF going under something else.

Why El Z got it in the first place I don't know, as it hasn't looked to have done anything.

Wonder if they found this in the scrub while clearing for new development around Enfield Yard?

I found some VHGFs at Carrington yesterday. There were about a dozen, all had fresh PN paint on the sides only. The interesting part was the bogies. They are all older NSWGR types like 2CF and 2BP, not normally seen on grain wagons. I wonder if these wagons are ex storage or ex broad gauge.

Great shots - I'm fairly sure these are ex broad gauge stored wagons from Victoria, PN have been reactivating a lot of them for use in NSW.

Thanks Raichase and 080900. Good to see more of my old Victorian wagons have followed me up here.

The cars illustrated were indeed part of the set of 12 on 3PW4 on Saturday 25 February. They were on the south end of the rake. So they are newly arrived from Victoria. (3PW4 runs via Melbourne).

Here are some oldies, mostly from the 90's.


ROBX 328G. This is the only ROBX I sighted in NR blue. Note the patches and sealed doors.


The other side.


NR 1 & 2. Prototype coil containers.


NR 1 & 2 later with different bases.


RKLY 20553M with a hood. The only one of these I sighted, it always stayed on the same wagon. Apparently it carried strip steel.


After a few years it had rusted quite well. The hood is a little longer than 40'.


ROBX 8P. This had been a VCCX and RCCX before becoming an ROBX carrying slabs.




VQCX 607 and 657. The only 2 I sighted in V/LINE FREIGHT paint.


VQCX 657H.


VQMX 536F. I beleive the VQMX conversion was basically to remove some of the heavy lugs and replace with IBCs. This would allow it to be set up 2 carry 3 20', or 1 20' - 1 40' without moving the older type lugs. Eventually all the lugs on FQX type wagons began to be replaced with IBCs anyway.

Visit my FLICKR for the big pics.

I have just uploaded a heap of reference photos from Wednesday to Flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/biqua/tags/referencephotos/


They are mainly containers, steel wagons, and a large number of individual NGPF shots for weathering reference. Hope they are of help to someone ...

Some of Tasmanian stuff. The first pic is an original 40 foot QK class wagon built by the people at TGR workshops in the 1970s. Lengthened to 60 foot in the late 90s/early 00s and renumbered as QS wagons. Often out of service due to cracked frames.

Second pic is a QM wagon, made by Comeng. From South Australia, i think.

third pic, a empty QS and QHN wagon. The later an old converted FE class log wagon, again made by the TGR in the 70s.

That's interesting - the raised handbrake wheel must be a fairly recent thing? I've only known them to be directly on the wagon ends, as per the picture on the NSW rolling stock website photo - http://www.nswrollingstock.com/CQGY.htm

Could it perhaps be dependant on the maker of the wagon?

Perhaps - I remember discussion with Hanovale over the end steps on the model, with me not realising at the time there were two different builders, and at least two different step types. A quick google search turns up on wongm's site 544 with the lower wheel, and 529 with the raised wheel back in July 2010, which according to the nswrollingstock site are both from the same batch of Doric built wagons - of course specifications can change mid-order also.

I've always found them a very nice looking wagon, and am intrigued by the multi-purpose nature of them also.

Here is QHBH ??489A sighted today with what looks like a guard over a chain or belt driven device on the bogie. Danged if I know what it's for.

The CQGY with its handbrake wheel directly on the end of the wagon, was prone to the handbrake chain getting caught up and not tightening/releasing.  While I was at QR National, the CQGYs were progressively altered so the chain could drop away from the handbrake "housing" and not tangle up.

Looks like there are some new coal hoppers on the dock at Carrington today for PN. They look like NHDHs with the differing shine on the sides.
