Thank you for the video Bigshunter.No worries Z VAN, well Graeme & Greensleeves are out chasing trians, I'm chasing train video's on YouTube and your chasing info, just 1 big info chain gang.
These Hoppers? What is their future?
I know this is the Portland thread etc, etc however I wish to ask the question?
These hoppers have been stored for many years apparently and Pacific National has in recent times scrapped wagons that from afar could have been sold or retained for future use.
Yes SSR purchased nine Ex VR hoppers awhile back and that seems about it.
These 100t hoppers have an axle load that exceeds the Portland line and most of the Victorian Standard gauge lines, so why are they retained?
Manildra Starches have 100t hoppers, who else in regular traffic.
I will stop at that this as otherwise I will stray into speculation rather than facts!
Regarding info on these hoppers, plenty of questions were asked on Greensleeves video and he seems to have all the answers there.
For what ever reason if you play the the clip, the comments aren't attached so hit the link directly above this, there they are.
So thanks this time to Greensleves for the clip & info.
