A blog that deals with the Adelaide to Melbourne main railway line, both in prototype and to modelling Horsham.

I don't usually chase trains after leaving work, but I decided to go to Bunnings Hardware to check out some foam board, listed in their new catalogue. Passing over the bridge at Anzac Highway, noticed an intermodal service lingering at Keswick, but more particularly, it was loaded with many Swire Shipping containers. the only other time I had seen a unit was a while ago at Port Flat yard. Along with an assortment of 20 and 40' Hamburg Sud containers, there where few other liveries on the service. I finally managed to get ahead with time to spare dry dry creek, as the train had to slow to before it could pass through the triangle, to head down to Port Adelaide.
NR 90 and NR 36 leading, heading towards the triangle and onto Port Adelaide terminal.
Swire shipping container JSSU 11201468 2261 (Wagon is a NQKY). all the Swire containers were 20' units.
