I think it is highly doubtful there would be any challenge made to export. If there is so much as 100 people concerned about the cultural heritage aspects I'd be amazed, gobsmacked if even collectivel ...

Probably be cheaper to have a good rail/bus interchange at the Domain/Cornelian Bay/Gardens rather than building light rail into the city I'd think.

Big old house at the quarry end of Giblin street, absolutely covered in Ivy, something definitely oblong under the ivy at the back looking on google maps, would that be it?

So its uniqueness as an inspection vehicle possibly exists only in rostering documents?

Posted 10 Dec 2013 20:31 in Tasmania by Floody

Were the inspection car alteration parts retained somewhere for future reinstatement?

Posted 10 Dec 2013 15:51 in Tasmania by Floody

Was DP13 preserved in inspection vehicle condition or 'restored' back to passenger railcar configuration?

Well that does open it up a bit. You would think there should be some records from the official 'workshop' about the disposal.

They had the money and deployed it. End story.

Spent yesterday driving around the wineries near Avoca (Vic)...Saw vans as storage, repurposed open wagons, loco tenders as water tanks, flat wagons as bridges, you name it. I don't think its just Tas ...

Bikepath/walkway plan is ridiculous.

Assertion Greens are Tasmania's problem is even more ridiculous, we are capable of sabotaging ourselves just fine without them.

I don't know about 'nobody much' playing pokies in Devonport or further west...Federal Group/Oasis/TasKeno operate in pubs right across and down the coast as far as I know, and given the low socio eco ...

Spotted this ad for a property in Groves street, Gladstone. It seems to me most shacks do not have buffers (see photo 12)

Great footage of historic forestry equipment, the ANM Climax at work on a Florentine valley log spur and a Q-class in action heading a decent sized log train on the DV line in this video

Djukin, Tasmania is probably pretty much unique in that the primary industries are minority employers and massively subsidised to exist because its almost impossible for anything but niche businesses  ...

Not sure if this ought to be in the media thread or this one... Muckery article today suggests the latest light rail plan will terminate in Glenorchy and be standard gauge. I'm conjecturing if that ha ...

^Echo this, that pic of Y6 at Goliath is awesome.

Apologies for derailing the thread with DP talk, as I said, just a wacky foamer idea, lets not take it overly seriously!

Posted 03 Mar 2013 14:18 in Tasmania by Floody

Its a bush tractor ("jigger") type loco. It was offered to DVR with "conditions" for display, which DVR weren't in a position to fulfill, hence the offered was declined. No ...

I reckon its fairly unlikely all in all, given the Hydro depot is long gone. Still, be interesting to hear if there was something there (would be Tassie rail heritage's best kept secret if there was!)

Surely trikes would be safeworking havoc, and doesn't it already take the bulk of the day for the main services to run the round trip?
I really think the big question is how many patrons are needed to ...

Never heard that one before. Once upon a time the ANM Climax which is at TTMS was stored out of use at Florentine Junction, past Maydena. It was under a makeshift roof for at least a portion of the fe ...

Floody, the rail preservation groups may never ever get back on the mainline. Its a lot more complicated than what others think it is.

I imagined that might be the case. What I was intimating is t ...

The deal is subject to the Tasmanian Government finding an operator and underwriting its ongoing operational costs for the next four years.
Guess thats another 4 years in the wilderness (pun intended) ...
