JCW 80' Container Wagon
50 of these wagons were
built by Comeng Ltd at Braemar in 1975-76. They were numbered 22033 to
22082, fitted with 2CN bogies and 840mm diameter wheels and painted
Indian red. They were designed to carry 2 x 40’ containers, 2 x 37’
container and 4 x 20’ or 2x 20’ and 1 x 40’ containers.
Our model is based upon the
second series of JCW wagons, the first contract of 32 wagons were
delivered to TNT and used exclusively in their distribution of GMH parts
between Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide they were painted TNT
orange. As the wagons were so successful the NSWPTC acquired the 32
wagons from TNT and commissioned a second contract of 50 wagons to meet
their growing intermodal requirements.
