The Wagon and Container Pictures thread

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?
"Raichase"
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.

RCIX 14823W at Marandoo today. It has what appears to be a ComRail orange painted bogie at one end with the AN yellow paint nearly all fallen off.

Here's RQNW 16S at Marandoo. It's an SAR built SFCW/AQDW riding on ex NSWR 2CN bogies. I guess the aligned bogies are getting a bit rare to maintain these days. It has been like this for a while, and running on steel trains for a while too.

I noticed on todays 7PM5 out of Perth a single RQWY well wagon, but due to the dirt I couldnt get the number. Just wondering where the other 4 siblings might be??

That may have been one of the 4 RRWY well wagons that normally run on the East coast, carrying high containers. They are all former end units off RQWY sets.



Here's a cleaner one.

"EFB5800"


Ive noticed 3 on the east coast in the last year,
BA6 - 18/9/11 -  unidentified, but has original reflectors. Interestingly in the same train was the coupled combo of RKIY7005 and RRIY0001.
MB4 - 21/10/11 - RRWY 6007, with 4 New Reflecters either side, two in the middle have PN Insigna.
BM4 - 5/1/12 - RRWY 7263, PN Yellow Sill and 5 Plain reflectors either side.

Location: On my office roof.
From memory cos I don't have access to my photos at the moment, the 4 RRWYs are numbered 6003, 6007, 7262, 7263. 6003 and 6007 use the number of the set they were taken from. The units from the other end of the sets were numbered 7262 and 7263, after 7261 was given to the RKZY. They are all former end units, rebuilt with a coupler and end sills etc at the former draw bar end. The left over 3 units of each set sat for a while until they were fitted with couplers etc to become the two 3 unit RRTYs. All these, along with the RKIY were normally used on the East coast for high boxes. Sometimes RQLYs, RQWYs and RQZYs were used too. Later the RRRYs were made from wrecked RQZY well sets and used in the pool. Sometimes the former FCL owned RRCY 5 unit well set and the P/RQYY articulated NR and Boxcar well sets are used in the pool. I'd say the idea is to use RQZY 48' drawbared wells and the Toll RRXYs across the desert and use the odds and sods in the East coast pool.

Hi all,

As it's often hard to find good pictures of perway machines, rolling stock, etc, I've started a group on Flickr to bring them together - anyone feel free to join the group, and add perway vehicle pics to it. Smile

I saw 2 of the PQAW 3 packs on BM2 at Tarro this morning. They were at in a block at the front with some RQEYs, all carrying ISO shipping containers. Is this block dropped off/ picked up at Ettamogah perhaps?

RKDY wagons are only authorised to run between Whyalla and Darwin due to their ANZR wheel profile, essentially fulfilling the role of RKWY wagons for the line to Darwin. RKWY wagons are not allowed on the line to Darwin.

Here are a couple of PNs unusual coal wagons. NHPH 90304F is a single unit wagon, left over from a wrecked set. Some of these type have been retired and replaced with NHIH bodies on recycled bogies from these wagons. This one has overhauled bogies modified with steps for use on NHIHs.



NHIH set numbers 97231 -97234 has 2 hoppers that are a bit dirty and used with 2 newer, cleaner hoppers. There is another NHIH set like this too. This set and all the sets ahead of it in this train have bogies with a flat top, all wagons behind it have the more common type for NHIH wagons, with a downward curve.



Cheers, Matt.

There's nothing in the title saying I can't add a few photos of English/European wagons from my trip over to the UK, so I decided I'll add some!
