Bad day or so for GWA, GWN003 involved in an incident at Whyalla as wellI hope it's not a bad one, it's only new!
The original loco shed at Port Lincoln is being demolished today. The shed was erected in 1907, and like the carriage shed which succumbed to high winds a couple of years ago, it had originally been in use at Kingston SE. So it was somewhere around 130 years old, but had become unstable and dangerous. GWA considered rebuilding it, but as it is surplus to needs the safest option was to demolish it.
850's heavy overhaul is progressing well. A temporary "paint shop" (a large marquee over a steel frame) has been erected behind the workshops building, and 850 is now in there for repainting into GWA colours. It is expected back in traffic within a month.
