I saw a rake of these heading towards Newcastle through Willow Tree on Sunday afternoon at around 4pm with C506, 44206, GM27, S302 and C509 up front. Sounded and looked amazing. From ground level it d ...

3 CF's including 001 and 009 were still near Willow Tree on Sunday for banking duties, think the other was 002 or 004, memory is going.

Interestingly the Aurizon coal that I saw being banked at Ard ...

Only 2 of the 3 usual undercoat locos were visible adjacent to Griffith Road on Thursday last week. There have been 3 locos here for many months. Anyone know what is in the offing?

With X48 and X50 escaping Werris, does anyone know if this is for operational requirements, i.e. is there a potential for a return to service? I honestly have no idea, just curious as I will be in the ...

TT131 also out and about. 3rd loco on a loaded coalie sat at Hexham this morning.

Fairly certain a very clean and spotless looking TT130 was visible from Industrial Drive in Carrington at around 8am this morning.

Carrington seems to have emptied of a few coal sets by this evening that had been lingering around so things appear to have stepped up another gear today, still a few sets sat idle, more than usual. H ...

Coalies running earlier today (29/04) with Black Caviar seen heading a PN service into Kooragang Island around 6pm.

All 5 relief roads at Hexham were full (2 x PN, 2 x QR and 1 x XRN) when I left N ...

Strange as the XPT eventually passed East Maitland at 1620. I did not notice if there were any passengers on board.Surely it would not go North empty if it was suffering problems, it would have gone b ...

Not so much a delay but loco 48130 has just taken an XPT into Central with only 1 power car (2017) on the Country end of the coaches. Rather strange suggesting a shortage of power cars and swapping wi ...

532 was indeed unloaded from its road transport by Max Cranes at Peterborough Steamtown on Friday 15th June. In time it will be painted the traditional red and yellow scheme.
