Thats if Aurizon were to pick up extra contracts down the track.
Saw P2517 yesterday stalled out on the Pingelly bank heading north with a loaded grain train (mix of CBH wagons and ARG wagons). They look to have doubled the hill, as I came back across the loco moving the last ten wagons north through Pingelly to Brookton, where the rest of the train was stabled in the loop. Is this standard with the one loco on the loaded trains heading north from Narrogin?
DAZ1901 has had a bit of TLC at Forrestfield and been released in Aurizon colours as of today.
Now that's interesting, I'd have thought they'd be getting rid of the DAZ's and would be wanting to spend as little as they could on them. They must be planning on keeping 1901 for a while longer.
3120 will haul 3119,3105,3113 & 3116 to Avon Yard today to stow all 5, train number 6061, tabled out at 09:30 am. A sad day.
One of the rail sets is still vacuum braked, as is the set used for sleeper laying. The main idea for painting DAZ1901 however would seem to be for hauling the Anzac centenary special train on 31 October, in conjunction with Hotham Valley.
I have only just noticed this post from 8888 and was interested to discover that vacuum brakes haven't completely disappeared from WA just yet.
Can anyone provide a list of which locomotives (other than preserved/heritage items) are still fitted with vacuum brake controls? Are the infrastructure sets that 8888 mentions the only non "heritage" trains still operating with vacuum brakes?
Thanks in advance for any updates/information!
Fuel is loaded at Kwinana by Caltex.
Out of interest, has someone got a complete list of what is currently in storage at Forrestfield.
I noticed last week there is still 1 DFZ at Geraldton. Is this the only one still out of storage?
I guessing its all of the following
DAZ except 1901
Any further advances?
