Had reason to fly up to Tamworth this weekend (nothing to do with Wee Waa) and was able to see a few things in the area in between my planned activities. First time in the area so was interesting having a drive around:

Gunnedah (morning)
Manildra shunters working away beside Gunnedah station
9201 Stabled in shed beside station
TT106/WH001/WH002 Loaded Coal to Newcastle

B61+S317/GM27 Top and Tailing ARTC ballast train in association with sleeper replacement work

VL354 Stabled on Containers (Sydney bound)
8108/8127/8164/8178 Stabled

Gunnedah (late afternoon)
As earlier plus
8116+G526+8113+48103+48156 Shunting Grain
8146+8180 Stabled on Grain

Gunnedah (early morning)
Manildra shunters still shunting
9201 Stabled in Shed
8178 Grain to Curlewis
TT124/TT101/TT118 Loading at Gunnedah Coal

8178 Leaving Grain Wagons at Curlewis
TT106/WH001/WH002 Empty Coal to Gunnedah Coal

Werris Creek
All sorts really
Of note G540, 8146, 8180, 8227 and TT08 around plus lots of scrap metal! Smile
8178 Arrived from Curlewis
1101+1107 Loading in Werris Creek Coal
8225+8242+8252 Empty to Coal Gunnedah direction

Apart from a few obvious runners, I had no idea what from the locomotives around the turntable were actually still in a working order? I am sure there were a few more runners than the ones noted above.

Willow Tree
TT120+TT119+TT121 Loaded Coal to Newcastle banked by 8251+8213+8248

Ardglen (late morning)
TT115+TT113+TT103 Empty Coal to Gunnedah direction

Flew back from Tamworth to Sydney early afternoon. Having previously done some wandering around the Newcastle/Maitland area this was my first time in the Upper Hunter/Liverpool Plains area and the short stint was very enjoyable.

Was the positioning of 9201 at Gunnedah a strategic spare? Seemed to have been there for quite a while looking at it??

Those bankers certainly do some work!

If I get a chance I will update post with links to a few photos.
