Southern Rail Models Grain hoppers

Another year has started, and it has been a while since the last post. As I said before, 2017 was the year of the container, with several from Auscision and Athearn containers joining the collection. Does not look much different this year, with more containers due soon. Also on the shopping list are flat wagons from SDS.
More recently, Southern Rail released their  XGAY/WGBY/WGSY/BGSY  C35 type grain hoppers, in use with Pacific National, Australian Wheat Board and SSR. Obtained my first packet of WGBY standard gauge units in dark blue: pack WGB01, with another packet in line, then will obtain some light blue (faded blue) units either Southern Rail or the to come Auscision units; for an Australian Wheat board train, possible hauled by my CFCLA EL and a upcoming Auscision G in the same livery as a QUBE operated train.

Have added another three units: pack WBG04.

Six units together.
