So far the last two digits of every CBH locomotive match the last two digits of its builder's number.

Do you have a list of the builders numbers for the CBH Locos?

The builder's plates are on the right hand side of the frame below the cab. The plates themselves are difficult to read due to dirt but there is a steel plate welded to the frame just in front of the plate, painted black which has the builder's number engraved on it.

The actual numbers are 2363-01 to 2363-22, with building dates on the builder's plates themselves on the right hand side as viewed.

I didn't try to collect all the dates:001 is March 2012; 009 and 011 are both June 2012.

I saw 122 but failed to note the date, sorry.

I picked up Motive Power 96 this afternoon.

They indicate that the new locomotives have builder's numbers 2595-01 to 2595-03.

Apparently the locomotives are numbered 023 to 025 as expected, however.

In short:

Not our problem, don't care about the Tier 3 lines, absolutely no leadership or direction will be coming from this government......

With the current financial position the Government will not be interested regardless of the long term benefit of retaining and increasing grain on rail.

Hello lads, does anyone know current frequency of grainies on the GSR, particularly from Wagin to Albany and return and the numbers if possible? xAxx instead of xKxx, xSxx or xMxx??

Came through Forrestfeild yesterday and noted P2517 & P2511 on CBH duties loading at Metro Greain.

Today had the nice surprise of seeing CBH003 shunting a new CBH loco into Gemco for commissioning.

Is this one of 023 to 025 or yet another one?

Likely to have been a K14 or K16 from the Miling line at that time of day.

P2511 & 2517 have now returned to Aurizon after the completion of the hire to CBH.

I wish to correct this posting, the two P class are in fact continuing with CBH through April, as well as the leased XU / XT wagons.

Noted in the paper yesterday that Brookfield has provided CBH with an access price for the network including Tier 1 and Tier 2 lines (including the Miling Line) as well as the Tier 3 lines they asked for (allows for ten years of maintained access to those lines). This price is supposedly below the ceiling price set by the ERA in January, but CBH is yet to respond.

This should allow for ten years of trains on the Narrogin-Merredin line, the Merredin-Kondinin line and the Yilminning-Kulin line, as well as the Miling line staying in operation. Hopefully (under current proposals) there will be a bit of non-grain freight on the Miling line and the Avon-Albany lines to help offset some of the 'grain-only' rail access charges.

Thanks for this Bulbous.   Any chance you can extract the article and post it for us interstate and international railpagers.  Much appreciated

"Brookfield asks CBH for more"

Basically says that rates will increase overall, but outlook for the tied 2 and 3 lines under review is better. I believe that the rail versus truck rates for the areas around Kulin are up to $6 per tonne cheaper by rail under the previous access agreement structure.

Much appreciated. Let's hope we get a resolution for the Tier 3 lines as well

I noticed that the two P class and their mixed rake of XU/XT/CBHN wagons have been loading out of Narrogin bin for the last two nights. It has been nice to see some movement down this way finally.

CBH004 just headed south through Narrogin towards Wagin light engine - any idea on where it is headed? Is it coming back from servicing?
