Unit48.com containers part 2

A week has passed and out again to catch the 6MP7 passing through Mount Barker Junction; usually around 10.15 in the morning. How another week can be different. On arrival, all the signals were blank, before turning red: meaning something was stop in the loop. Then the sound of throbbing GM's coming up the hill with a return grain, coming to  a halt into the loop. Three GM's and two class 22's. (Some of these were on an empty I saw on last Tuesday, that had five GM's: three in orange and two green units, and a class 22).

The grain had been pulled into the loop to allow 6MP7 Pacific National Trailerail service to pass (running late). Up front were two 93 class (9313 and 9312) and trailing NR13.

Only two Unit48.com dry boxes, and a few curtain sided containers. More unusual, was the five pack well wagon set in the middle of the consist.
