I'm guessing the 18 odd hoppers that GML10 brought over from SA (through geringhap Tuesday 6.12.2016) and sent to the wagon maintenence centre at McIntyre Loop are in the process of being converted to BG from SG. These are similar in style to the hoppers already in use on QUBE's current Hanson service.
So does this mean the demand is higher to justify a second train, or does it mean the new operator is showing more interest in growing the business?
Also, I assume that the trains can not be lengthened due to limitations within respective sidings, so if a second train is to run, how often is it to run?
A G-T-G combo ran the down apex, seen on albion camera at 6:47pm on Monday 5/6/17.
I'd guess it was G532 leading as it looks to be in SCT colors, and G521 was reported on the Maryvale the same night.
The T class was one of SSR's, T386 maybe?
Third loco could of been G512 which ran the service solo earlier that day.
I know that but the colouring is still SCTs.Im more surprised that SCT let it go without doing it themselves or requiring the purchaser to do so.The SCT lettering was removed pretty quickly. (Years ago, now)
Since it doesn't actually say "SCT" on it, why would they care?
