"coyote"


coyote has it!

The loco in question is ROD 20 - itself, 14 and 18 have these brackets which seems to indicate from research that these locos were specifically used on troop trains in France during World War I.

Over to you.

Maybe the wrong spot for this, but what's the main difference between the Vic N class locos, and the NR type as used in the likes of the Ghan?

Is it just newer with bigger motor?

Or is there more to it?

Do they use the NR for other passenger services around the country?

TIA

Maybe not quite the right thread but it'd be aeasier to name the similarities than differences. They both have the letter N and a good design and flat cab front. That's about it. The NR's have a ground up different frame design, a 16 cylinder GE engine (~4,000hp 7FDL-16) and the N's have a 12 cylinder EMD (~2,500hp 12-645E3B or E3C). The NR's were designed as a freight loco, no passenger work like the N's were with their head end power generators for lighting, heating, cooling, doors etc

In summary, pretty much everything.
The NRs are GE heritage whilst the N class are EMD origin.
Both have 12 wheels and 6 traction motors but it just about ends there.

Cool. And thanks.

It was the different windows at the front that caught my eye when watching a doco on the Ghan. It explains why the train has three carriages dedicated to what otherwise would be head end duties...

Curious if the cab is any bigger on the inside. But I supposed I can look that up.
