The AQQYs at Garbutt are part of Aurizon's new fleet for the MMG Dugald River zinc concentrate traffic starting in a few months. Two seventy wagon sets are proposed for the startup.Thanks for corrections Sulla. Finger right on the pulse.
That gaggle of 4000s went down to the Jetty Sunday morning. I believe they were to supply motive power for a couple of Mt Isa line sets stuck down there after the GNR was closed on Friday by a broken axle on the acid train at Pentland.
Aurizon began scrapping KOJX cattle wagons stored at Cobarra today, I saw three heading down to Sims this morning. These wagons had previously been made surplus by the new Queensland Transport cattle crates now fitted to Aurizon's PCZYs and PJZYs.
A QR carriage transfer to or from UGL Bohle (Townsville) for the Inlander set. These happen every few months from Brisbane. The car carrier is used as a spacer wagon to separate the carriage diaphragm from potentially fouling the locomotive.Thankyou Sulla, you are a fount of knowledge.
Pacific National PH003 on narrow gauge bogies heading north on low loader between Moree and Goondiwindi this afternoon. Destination?I'm guessing it will join PH001 & PH002 at Nebo.
Noted yesterday that the track on the main Western line adjacent to the Acland coal siding had been removed. I presume it will be relaid on concrete sleepers.Part of the project to install concrete sleepers to Dalby? Has there been any progress on the lowering of tracks through the range tunnels? This was funded two years ago.
