|An RQBY in grey in front of a OCY wagon.|
If of the same quality as the initial flat wagon, this wagon is a useful addition to the intermodal wagon fleet, seen on any intermodal train across Australia since operating under National Rail and national standardisation. Before that, they were confined to the NSW system.
Now just need the RSQY 'skeletal' variant. (Note this is the same wagon but with a variation in the deck cut outs. Some were coded NQBY for a while, but became RSQY under National rail ownership.)
Remember, they are not true skeletal wagons, as they were built with full decks. They have only had holes cut into the deck to reduce their tare weight.
