SCT PWWY well wagons

Sneaked in behind announcement of Indian Pacific passenger cars from Auscision, was the PWWY well wagons, purpose built for SCT. Currently run on all SCT services, but only double stacked Adelaide to Perth. Just need their long 80' flats and the SCT consist will be complete.

I have added some prototype photographs below.

Year of the container

It looks like 2017 will be the year of the container, with Auscision undertaking a rerun and second run of their 40' units. All the existing liveries will be redone, plus a whole number of new liveries.

In addition, as to the Caulfield report: finally, Auscision will be releasing a 48' high cube container (which will include Linfox).

Also, Southern Rail Models, are also releasing 48' high cube containers, for their up and coming articulated wagons.

Almost all of the containers run on various operators trains today, except for Boxcar, mostly gone by the year 2000. Some the special FCL liveries would not be common either.
