Who really cares. It's their company and they can do as they please.

But, if you think SCT are engaging in an expensive and pointless strategy why not ring and tell them and see what kind of answer ...

Then there is Relay Working - 3-man with rotating 8 hours shifts in the rest van, behind the locos. How far the 3 man crew can go is limited by the fuel on the locos and in the trailing ISO tank and t ...

How does a cow derail a 132 tonne loco ?

Easy, it goes under the front and rolls. As it rolls under traction motors, they lift off the rial, add some later forces and there is a derailed loco.

I'm certainly not getting excited - no financial backing and the 2 companies that were to provide wood for the mill have been put under administration in the last 6 months.I beg to differ; both EM ...

The burning question about these UGR Locomotives is what maximum speed can they be run at fuelled right up on the National Interstate Std Gauge railways .

So was it restricted in speed, or has it all been sorted now?

115 kmph all the way....Wouldn't be a problem with an empty fuel tank! I thought only the passenger and '7' trains ran at 115 anyway?

I have heard a story going around lately that the SCT's have actually weighed in lighter than 134t and as a result EDI are in the process of putting up to another tonne of something into the units. If ...

Last drive through Balaklava showed it to be closed and Roseworthy was rusting, the haul is too short for it to remain. I hope the Barossa is regauged if only to retain the potential for a regional  ...

So say allowing for inflation, $230m for the line and 60mill for what? New railcars or are they going to extend it to Seaford heights as suggested in the report? Remodel Noarlunga with a third track?  ...

Not quite the name I was looking for, but I'll pay that since Steelton is only a few miles east of this siding which closed about 1960. Known as Brennan according to a well known book on the line.

Also, any know why the 830 is lighter than the 48?

Steelton?

I'm curious as to why the Seaford extension now costs $290m when the report was done in 2007 (on DTEI's website) it was in the 170-195 mark; even with the building of stabling facilities it wouldn't c ...
