WANTED - WEST COAST RAILWAY ROLLINGSTOCK

Looking to buy any rollingstock in WCR colours, also open to locomotives (I've already got 2 B's though, so I'd be looking for an S).

Will part with u ...

[quote=Rodo]I might suggest following the Forrest branch or even the Wensleydale line remnants. A little can be found of the Beech Forest and Crowes line. The Timboon line has some viaducts in place a ...

Hey guys,

I might be posting this in the wrong place, and if so just point me in the right direction, but I'm planning a week long trip to the West of Victoria in February to go exploring some old  ...

Last weekend I was talking with my grandad who mentioned that Warragul was losing J550. He didn't know the exact details but said that 'some train mob' had bought it.

Does anyone have any more inform ...

Despite quite a bit of interest from potential freight users, the former State Gov seemed quite uninterested and we can only hope matters will change for the better.

That's because the railway wasn ...

Although it wasn't a cab ride, I remember years and years back myself and the family were at Stony Point when the A class rattled in, and after the loco had been moved around the driver asked if we wa ...

Looks like they might be getting ready to ship out. If I recall correctly, this train was usually a push-pull setup, with all 3 pointed in the UP direction you'd assume they'd be leaving.

Factory_Fill that last shot is incredible!

It's good to see a few WRC liveries surviving (albeit minus the logo), even if they'll eventually be gone.

Must have been running fantastically on time, I lost it on the way back between Drouin and Longwarry. Didn't even manage to catch sight of the tail light as I crossed at Longwarry.

Although I only  ...

Thought I might add my small but ultimately useless photo to the thread.

Considering I no longer live in Drouin it doesn't seem as pointless to ride the train this year. See you guys there.

After countless thoughts of 'I can't afford it, I'll just watch' I ended up on the very last train, and I've got to say it was worth every cent. Belgrave to Gembrook has absolutely nothing on Thompson ...

Does anyone know what sort of gunzelling we'll actually be able to do around the area?

As mentioned earlier, not much. Parking in Walhalla is likely to be difficult if at all possible. There are fe ...

Would this also apply for extension of an existing crossing?

For example, this crossing here:

if they changed the yellow on the cab to blue it'd look 10x better.

although, changing the stainless on the sides to a nice white like the xtraps have would help significantly with the aesthetics.

I waded through a few pages and hadn't seen a mention, what about the Metro Comeng in the latest "government spendings" ad?
