As mentioned in another thread Mount Lofty Railway Station is located 3.7kms and some 200m lower than the summit of Mount Lofty which occasionally sees light snow (that often melts as it hits the ground)

There may be some interesting things, mainly rain blowing in all directions, appearing on the cams from tonight then over the next few days. Forcasting a bit of rain and wind.

The picture above looks eerie as the train runs across the mountains.

When the sun is out and the area is bright with light image quality is superb.

3MX2 (we believe) has failed at Callington on the eastern side the Adelaide Hills.  8256 has been despatched from Islington as D251S and is currently on its way to Stirling working through Belair Park.  Expect it through the cameras in the next 20 mins.

8254 also went up the hill this morning on 7PM5 so thinking this has gone onto Melbourne as this loco is not at Tailem Bend.

the Nr's have now gone through Mount Lofty.

Bit of a pity we never see any good old locos on grainies anymore, just the modern (& somewhat boring) FQ's, gwa's & gwu's Sad

Blame the drop in the iron ore price Rhys, all those loco's bought to cater for Ore trains, now relegated to pulling boring old graffiti covered grain hoppers!

It is a shame we did not get the cameras in earlier to capture some of the old locos.  I have been going through my stock of 5 years of Bunbury Street and there is plenty of old action there.

I guess we can't hope to achieve everything we want to do in the timeframe we want to.

Yep I agree, the Wirrida-Whyalla ore train finishing up was one of the worst things to happen to rail in this state along with the south line branches (Pinnaroo & Loxton) closing & the Leigh Creek coalie finishing as well. Talk about dark times for rail...
