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. A total of 60 wagons were 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.
The two new packs shown below
include three KQ container and two GY open wagons. These carry
all new road numbers.
