Thanks for sharing the pics Bevans.
Aside from the pity of missing number boards on the tender and sides of the cab, it looks absolutely fantastic considering some of the other preserved locos I've ...

Seems like questions answered then fellas, Cheers.
Here's hoping that someone like Auscision decides to run the steel Overland cars seen being hauled by V/Line locos in the 80s-90s
Admittedly, i ...

Go back to Auscision and look in among the VR E cars for V&SAR joint-stock cars.
Perhaps this is where the confusion crept in.

My apologies if this question has already been raised/and or answered.
Overland cars. I've typed Overland in the search function on this site and it does the 3 bars of indecisiveness and then clear ...

The other point here is the 4 reasons to be leaving the lockdown areas.... Do you have to prove that, or the utterance of one of them suffices???
Is there any benefit mandating that everyone needs ...

The BEST livery IMHO, and gone far too soon.
Plus, an N class on a freight........... less common than a G on a pass I would guess. Not by much though.
These (hate to use the term old - its too ...

Nup, ditch it. $5 flat fee.Cant afford it.... Bugger off and walk - it's not like the exercise will kill you.No issue with having a concession/disabled fare for it either. That's usually merit b ...

I'd say good on SSR for managing a fantastic result thus far on both of these locos.

That’s good to hear mate, and you’re bang on with having to wait. Covid being no expediter I’m sure.I suppose we’re starting to drag the bottom for new models to be run, as surely there’s ...

Hopefully they decide to rerun the JCX bogie hoppers but ONLY in the VR and VLine liveries, as the others lingered on in the sales que. The MET liveried version would be great IF it could be done with ...

M636C thanks for your reply.

Anyway........ On the E cars, does anyone here know if any CE vans ran to 1985 that weren’t in VR blue??
