Rail 'Seatrain' / Pacific National
63' CONTAINER WAGON
These wagons were rebuilt from
SAR FQX container flat wagons during the early days of NRC, the
conversion consisted of weight reduction to the deck surface and the
removal of the equipment boxes and the loading stanchions.
They were fitted with second hand Barber
S2 bogies and repainted Marigold and Royal Blue for SeaTrain traffic
between Port Botany NSW and Fishermans Island Qld. Initially they
operated in blocks until the Seatrain business unit was absorbed into
the Intermodal fleet.
Some wagons were fitted with a
below deck POLAR PACK power unit to supply power for refrigerated
containers and coded RRTY.
