Built for the transport of very heavy equipment used in the construction of the Snowy River power generation scheme. It saw infrequent use after that project was completed. Like the QS wagons, QW 2 could be equipped with either 2 or 3 axle bogies.

This photo is from the Dec. 1961 VR newsletter and shows QW 2 with a special load as described in the caption.
