Wagons and containers

Photos of various freight wagons - if I know what train they are on then the photos are sorted into albums by operator and service, otherwise they are in albums by wagon code. You can view the new wagon and container photos in the order they were uploaded at this page.

The old school Victorian Railways bogie ballast hopper. Originally coded NN, the original style has been phased out.

All require the operation of a wheel on the side to discharge ballast
