I just saw a photo of CF4412If only there was some kind of handy photo gallery feature on a railway enthusiast website in which people could see photos of locomotives when they wanted to...?
........... O M G !!
Whitehaven Coal Quarterly Report - June FY2013The test train was run by 5029.
"Whitehaven's first Aurizon train will commence operation on 1 August 2013 as part of a 30t axle load trial. The Aurizon train unit will be fitted with special monitoring equipment to assess the impact of heavier locomotives on the Gunnedah Basin rail track. This trial is the first stage of a joint work program with ARTC to increase the maximum payload of Gunnedah Basin trains from 6,300t to in excess of 8,000t from Q1 2015".
I saw the new Aurizon C44 outside at UGL last Sunday. Maybe it will be doing the trial.
The CRL in Aurizon livery out the front at UGL also has CRL 002 (or was it 003?) painted on the side of the cab.
Are Aurizon leasing the new locos from CRL in a similar arrangement to the LDP's?
