Isn't it 3' 6" like the most of Tasmania?

Perhaps retractable grabrails could be installed... at the click of a button the driver could rip the motorized grabrails out of the rider's hands...

A question about VR locomotive overhauls...

I have heard locomotive examinations referred to as 'A' exams, 'B' exams, 'C' exams etc. What is the meaning of the different letters? Do they range from ...

Although I wouldn't mind seeing crate men climbing over S302!

Whoa, Torykins and ninthnotch -

Grafitti bad!  Umm, except when drivers grafitti locos, or the grafitti is three-dimensional.

I have a terrible quick photo of 6NBH that I can upload... but perhaps someone has a better pic?

Phew! The hard part (for me) is just about over... soon I will be able to get into making the body of the diesel. I have completed building the main frame of the loco out of styrene. The bogies swivel ...
