Qube ore trains

 
  Toddy Train Controller

Hey guys haven't seen or heard anything lately about the ore trains Qube were running to Goonumbla (North Parkes) and out to Cobar.. Just wondering if anyone knows whether they still run or not? Or is PN back in charge of these?

Thanks

PN have won the Goonumbla to Pt Kembla contract back from Qube. I understand Qube still run from Carrington to Cobar.

Thats interesting as the Goonumbla train used to run to Newcastle not Port Kembla,How long has it been running to Port Kembla?

Qube aka POTA, started running 8942/9841 to Port Kembla about May/June 2010 with my earliest photo being at Goulburn 24/5/10. I remember the contract changed over about the same time in 2012!

Goonumbla has been running to Port Kembla for years. It was going down there when I started at Coota in '04.

They definitely still run to Cobar. Passed the Cobar rake at Greta on the Down today.

Thanks guys for your responses. Was just seeing as both the John holland crn and ARTC timetables show PN minerals trains to Cobar but no Qube train and all other Qube trains to Narromine and Warren are shown. Seems weird they would leave the Qube Cobar train off the timetable unless it is ad hoc?
