Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) Ore Cars
Author: Coach_Key

Just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction to obtain dimensional data/drawings on the two types of ore cars used on Fortescue Railway's Pilbara operations. I am seeking this information for a potential model railroad project now that a HO scale manufacture is producing FMG locomotive models, but so far aside from finding a few photos online I havent had any luck in finding any detailed information on the FMG rolling stock. 

Please feel free to send me a PM or reply to this thread. Any help or referal will be greatly appreciated!

P.S. any ore car data from the other Pilbara operators would also be appreciated if you have any

I think a lot were built in China,but not real sure which particular company went down that path.
Will have a dig around ,and see what I can find.

''The initial order of 816 ore wagons was manufactured in China by CSR in Zhuzhou Rolling Stock Works and shipped from the port of Zhangjiaga. The wagons are in permanently coupled pairs and are fitted with rotary couplers for tippler unloading. After arrival, the wagons were deployed over completed sections of track as part of the company's dry commissioning process. It is understood that another 160 wagons are on order. ''

Well, those are not made to ride on.
First time I have seen rail cars without
safety appliances.
