Gauge converting PHAY wagons

In December 2016 Qube Logistics obtained a number of PHAY hopper wagons from South Australia for use on the Apex quarry train in Victoria. Originally running on standard gauge, bogies from TQXF container wagons and WGSY grain hoppers were used to convert them to broad gauge. Additional wagons arrived in February 2017.
