Should start running across to Perth on a regular basis soon. Performance in the Adelaide Hills has been exceptional, setting a new benchmark I'm told. The cooler under the radiators is the air compressor aftercooler. The dyno has redundancy built in with two seperate grid modules, one for each bogie, independant of each other.

I saw SCT's 006 and 007 stabled at SCT while I was in Melbourne. I noticed SCT007 has "Geoff (James Bond) Smith" painted under the window on the co drivers side.

  409 Minister for Railways

bluebird252, if you want to see the SCT class in action, you may want to watch this:



Only the first scene has the SCT class (for the record, SCT007, SCT006, SCT001, G521) so you don't have to watch the whole thing, if you don't want to Wink

You just need the James Bond theme song now to play as 007  comes along  Laughing

I would think that Mr Smith must have approved of the name and since it is combined with his own it might be a private or company internal joke.

If the CEO just wanted his name on a loco, why not on 001?

If they only wanted to highlight the number, just name it "James Bond".

We are unlikely to know the whole story with that name, I think.
