TasRail Timetable

 
  LFD459 Locomotive Fireman

Hi, team.

I thought about putting this in unusual sightings but what is classed as unusual at the moment?

It's 3pm and I just heard a train going through Devonport. Is this a strange movement or a regular service?

Is anyone up to speed on locomotive/train movements for people who may like to photograph or video said subjects?

Maybe someone may like to make up a rough time table and place on here... I tend to go off railtasmania.com.au but that hasn't been updated for 3 years.

Is this something people would be keen on or aren't there enough movements to justify collating the information?

Thanks, LFD459

I think there is a bit out of course running atm, due to the wild weather. Usually train 36 runs through Devonport between 1pm-4pm.

It would've been 36, the locos on 35 pooed themselves last night and held everything up.

Can any rail observers summarize for me the current weekly train timetable in the south of the state?
What is happening with the empty log train and the Launceston-Hobart container train?

From what I have been led to understand (subject to correction / refinement by forum members on the job, such as "theesp"):

Southbound;
> 33 arr Hbt c. 3 - 4am (terminates short at the Hub if no Hbt loading & now drops the M/T logs at the Hub rather than taking them on a joyride into/out of Hbt.)
> 35 arr. Hbt. 8 - 10am (due c. 8am but tends to frequently run late)
> 31 arr. Boyer 8 - 10pm (frequently terminates short at the Hub (esp. weekends) and runs to Boyer the next morning c. 8am. Thus seeing 31 stabled at Boyer station complete with locos, is a thing of the past, however, the wagon rake will often be present first thing in the morning prior to the 'ZB' dragging it on through to the warehouse roads).

Northbound;
> 32 dept. Boyer c. 4.30pm.
> 64 dept. Hbt. c. 2 - 3pm (now later and generally light engines only (was previously leaving 8 - 9am with the M/T logs back to the Hub, unnecessary now the M/T logs are being dropped at the Hub by 33).
> 38 (Sunday to Tuesday) dept. Hbt. c. 5pm.
> 36 (Wednesday to Saturday) dept. Hbt. c. 5pm only as far as the Hub, then temporarily stables there before departing the Hub northbound c. midnight.

Thats a rough outline from my observations / advice, so don't hold me to that for accuracy. As I said, hopefully one of our Tasrail employee forum members can correct any errors in the above.

Ok, thanks - appreciate both of you taking time to detail. Confirms some of my limited obs closer to Hobart.

Thanks for the info guys. I visited the inlaws in Hobart over the weekend and managed to snag a couple of trains whilst over there.

Saw one snaking under the Tasman Bridge on the way in from the airport around 5PM Friday (Camera was in the boot!)

Managed to get this one (I assume its #35) at around 7:00AM Monday morning beside New Town High School

Correct that's 135.
Was in early but shunting held up for a few hours due to a broken rail in the Hobart yard.

Not a bad shot, if in focus and with good resolution, you should submit to Railway Digest

Sorry if this is resurrecting an older thread, but having just spent last Thursday-Sunday in Tasmania, I noticed the timetable has a few oddities at the moment. Such as train 31 looked ready to go from Burnie in the morning, but only moved up to near the old paper mill sidings and waited there. Train 36 arrived in quite early to Burnie. Along with 77 which departed Burnie around the 1230pm mark on the Friday.

The only train that seemed to be where it was thought to be was the Fingal Coal train on the Thursday.

Is there any update as to what is running on what days and times?


Thanks

Train 31 leaves South Burnie(where pulp once stood) at 12:00/12:30 ish now. Train 36 arrives into Burnie roughly 08:30/09:00ish in the morning. Trains have been running like that for awhile now.
