Three of the DFZ though have the raised cabs, which would make them too high for the Queensland loading gauge.
Nothing a new cab wouldn't fix.

PN has (I think) 2 (maybe 3) diesel sets running on the Goonyella network.  These allow running to Terracom (on the Clermont spur at Blair Athol), which is not electrified and not a balloon.  This has ...

[quote=Graham4405][quote]From the front it looks just like a 2300, of course.

At the rear, it looks like a larger radiator has been fitted extending to the rear [b]where the toilet was located[/b]. ...

The current donor cores that I'm aware of are 2351, 2255, 2357, 2190D, 2182D...

There's been no trains on the Newlands system since last Thurs/Fri (a bit over a week ago)

[quote=M636C]I'm most familiar with the units at Gordonvale south of Cairns. At least one of those was a WAGR M or MA rather than a 73, not that the result was any different. It was only by the bogies ...

Grain trains ex Mackay to Mt McLaren on the Blair Athol branch of the Goonyella system have been running nearly daily for the past month or so, but I believe that current shipments are nearly finished ...

PN also runs trains to Rolleston from what I have seen.  Not sure on how many, but guessing picking up spot tonnes that Aurizon can't handle.

They were supposedly order to service Caval Ridge and Daunia mines, but generally can be found servicing all BMA & BMC mines.  There are still only 4 sets running.

Currently 3 MRH-90 Taipan's and 1 Chinook at Bowen airport.

That max wind gust figure provided by BOM is up for debate.  I wad in Ingham for Yasi, and winds we got in Bowen were comparable to that. ...

Wouldn't be the ex CFCLA CF(?) class being repainted by any chance?

More than likely a site including hot bearing detector, hot wheel detector, dragging equipment detector.

If it is an Aurizon site, it could be one of the new "super sites", that have cameras taking ...

The article is stating the new volumes are in addition to the existing 1.2 million per annum so even better news.
The 1.2mtpa mentioned is for haulage from Burdekin mills to Town ...

Normally only 15mins of 20km/h minimum... unless something is wrong. Total section time Almoola to Briaba is 30 minutes approx.

Loaded trains not allowed on old (up) road.

Closer to 20 at Callemondah... including a few that have recently been placed in storage.
