Peter, any updates on 1301?

[quote=justapassenger]You do know that the trains from Wirrida (the older siding) to Outer Harbor (or was it to Port Flat?) carrying product from the Prominent Hill copper-gold mine are completely dif ...

Peter how much work has been done to 1301, I thought it was to be a simple engine swap?

The RSK's have come up nice better than the dirty red they used to be.

It looks like Whyalla may need som ...

Not sure about Whyalla, but I think the only locos there now are GWNs, CKs and 900s.

Hi Peter I was in Lincoln Xmas eve and noticed that the excess 830's were no longer on the turntable, do you know where they have gone?

Also good to see the 3 X 830's bringing in a grainy Smile

I take it that this occurred at Whyalla and that the damaged track is within the balloon loop.

Yes, sorry I should have stated that.

1301 (DE01) was built in 1956 or 7 so she is nearly a pensioner.

All that horsepower simply means more trucks on a rake the push is on for 60 AHOF's, but the back shunt on the tip pocket will need  ...
