Read any heritage group newsletter and if they run steam they mention at least once a year about locos being withdrawn for inspection. As Valvegear and LowndesJ515 have mentioned it involves a strip-d ...

I got 95%. The question on how many diesels Victoria had in 1959 tripped me up.

[quote=justapassenger]Gen3 has a smaller roll cage than Gen2, so the body shells should be a little closer to resembling the road cars as opposed to the current 'Mustang' which is the size of a Falcon ...

PSM originally proposed to do the S-class back in the 1990s. There were adverts in AMRM in about 1994 that showed they were going to do original and streamlined versions along with the entire 10-car S ...

Well it was to be expected in the current climate I guess. The return of 3801 and soon 3001 fill roles that suit the current operations. 5711 would still be one of those 'be nice to do but when and if ...

If the company isn't making profits then how can it expand or develop? Don't you need profits to promote expansion?
