Guess it shows Tasrail were right to bring a couple in first, to sought out such issues, prior to the final delivery.

Fluid dynamics 101 really. Failure of a well designed air admission system - unfortunate.  Failure to design an adequate air admission system - disappointing. Failure to consider the need for air admission - unacceptable.

just out of interest what vacuum control's were designed into the original 4 extra cement wagons built ? or didn't they require any.
certainly would have been something to see when they unloaded the first one Smile

are any of the originals earmarked for preservation?

At the very least HE1 should be preserved as it ticks a number of 'heritage' boxes.  And for those still stuck in the era of steam, it (and the others in the first batch) can even claim to be regularly hauled by a steam locomotive!

lets hope they don't do as pacific national did and scrap every wagon they could get their hands on...!!

there are a few other types that would be nice to see preserved..any that were built at the inveresk workshops for an example.

Yes, it was a real shame to see those wagons at Mowbray cut up for example, such a shame they couldn't have been offered for preservation!

Over the past couple of years I have made submissions to Aldermen of the Launceston City Council to build an addition to its Inveresk site to house its collection of Industrial Heritage which includes Agricultural, Transport, Road, Marine, Air and Rail. The idea being that people could get to see the collection that is locked away from the public. Included could be a place for a Heritage Fleet of Diesel Locomotives and wagons.This Heritage precinct could be located in the block bounded by the end of the DRR tracks and the station.
Lets no forget Tasmania (the T.G.R) were the Australian leader in Aluminium wagon design and construction with the QF Coal wagons in the 1960's.
More lobbying of the Council may help?

You would be surprised Dennis how many people are on the same train of thought as yourself. A fair bit of negotiating is happening at moment with a number of influential parties (obviously I can't go into detail publically as it is fairly sensitive at the moment). PM me for further details.

I'm quite surprised on the lettering on the TOMY class, the concentrate wagons on the Melba line. 100km/h? Surely not lol. I'll try to get proper pics later on on the two here in Burnie.
The two are numbered TOMY 001-O and TOMY 002-A

Well look what I found on Alibaba, for anyone wanting to buy their own Tasrail wagons.
Sadly not on Aliexpress with quick shipping Laughing

Looks like they took the photos after painting, but before adding logos and labels.

A rake of 16 New Cement Hoppers has arrived in Devonport and are sitting on the 2nd road.  The old hoppers and one new one are still runing on the cement train.
