RAILWAYS KQ CONTAINER WAGON
The KQ container wagons
were first introduced in 1969 as a stop gap measure until further FQX
container wagons could be built; they were constructed on IZ (RY) wagon
frames. There were a total of 60 wagons built between 1969 and 1973; the
model reflects the first 30 wagons built at Bendigo workshops. They were
designed to carry a single 20’ container, many were permanently fitted
with a MC cattle container as shown in Rob O’Regan’s picture above.
