there was a small store in the gangers shed in burnie,roof leaked(lots of mold),people threw tools and bits all over the documents stored in there.and i didn't think they where going to last too much longer..
and as i had already saved many documents that p.n where going to throw out new that this was the most likely outcome so i organised for the burnie museum to come in and take the drawings and documents but i kept a couple for myself ...i hope this doesn't offend anybody...
the drawings went back a long time...asg parts/all manner of other loco parts/wagon details/old railcar details(one of which you could have built from scratch the amount of drawings for it)/bridge and track details/ land maps of the 1800's all very interesting stuff.....

While it looks fecking awful, at least its got another coat of paint, and it looks as if they've tried to treat the cancer in the tender.

Hey dunno if you have access to a scanner big enough but these would be awesome if they were scanned.

It would be cool to recreate the island station idea in a 3d program.

For some reason the site won't allow normal embedded photos like before.

Geez! DV1 looks like a block of concrete on wheels! They are meant to load the cement on the wagons not on top of the poor DV!

I know Steve, was quite shocking when i took a few pics of her. When i had a closer look later on, it does look a bit crusted on, prob take awhile for the removal of the cement.

The customer would probably prefer it in the wagons, not on!

Poor old DV1, don't think it's ever been quite that bad. Certainly looks like someone screwed up the loading one day.

Think its just off the wagons, the track between Devonport and Railton usually have cement dust amongst the ballast and rails.

Hopefully the new wagons have better seals.

Do you now if the new cement wagons have ventured down to Railton yet?  I know they took them for a run down the main line according to the Tasrail Facebook page.

Why does the train not go through a simply hoop jet water spray system prior to departure after each loading. This way, the train/locomotives look more publicity acceptable, good house keeping, lower maintenance issues.

When you see a train covered in a thick coating of cement residue like that depicted, to me gives me the thoughts that the rail owner/client are not interested in their image as to how the 'Joe Blogg' in the street sees them. Gives a poor taste of the railways.

Take a look at the road transport industry, most of the prime movers hauling have immaculate turned out vehicles, the Drivers take PRIDE in their vehicles and gives a lasting impression of the haulage company, the best advertisement, with a low cost with a high return.
