PN takes delivery of additional narrow gauge articulated container wagons

An additional trainset of RNAY three-pack articulated container wagons has been landed at Mackay Harbour and collected by PN over the last week. It appears PN is boosting the Intermodal Division's capacity on the North Coast Line Corridor between Brisbane and Cairns this year.

Thanks Sulla for the info. I didn't realise that equipment can be imported through the Mackay Harbour, good to see. I thought they were constrained to bulk commodities.

Also good to read the expansion of assets for intermodal.

I'd assume the wagons were unloaded at Mackay by the ship's own cranes. The last lot of PN wagons delivered to Townsville in April 2018 came off the Pacific Basin's Columbia River using its own lifting equipment. I'm not aware of wagons being imported through Mackay before, but Mackay Harbour appears to have seen an up-tick in heavy lift vessels arriving this year, roughly coinciding with big increases in container and cruise ship traffic through the Townsville Port, which may be constraining berth availabilty there.

Encouraging to see PN building its business in the north with all the down talk of road upgrades over the last few days.
