Not too well tied on Exclamation

42101 - Would you let it go without tightening those droopy chains. Question
  M636C Minister for Railways

It looks like the design has reverted to a hood unit, if the width of the radiator supports and the paint on the back of the cab mean anything!

I assume the radiator sits on top of the hood section, and will look like an SD70ACe (and you'll have to bend double to walk past).

The red cabside wasn't on the artist's impression either!

Why paint the loco ready to go when there is still more to be done ?

Or is the rest of the loco modular and only bolted on (no more welding)

Also, where is the fuel tank ? I thought the Fuel tank was critical to the design of the loco (or was that only with the NR class )

YM no way would i let that run like that more pac nat cost cutting we dont need to check our loads.
I had the NR class frames as loads through Parkes and we all checked and adjusted the chains and dogs as needed but we only had to adjust a couple of them all up.
Looks like this one slipped under the radar.

The 'new' 90 class were delivered in a similar fashion

M636 - I would have thought the rear steps would have been the giveaway as to the shape ! Bit big for shunters steps no ?

I think it will look great - red cab black window surround  

To rivet count, is that a frame or a chassis or half a loco, its not just  bare frame as got shipped to Pt Augusta recently , Its a finished painted frame with airtanks, wiring, plugs and sockets,  equipment brackets half of the cab and who knows whatever else they managed to prefabricate onto it

There's already a loco called SCT101 isn't there?

Its not the same number series

Who said they would have to have letters or follow existing conventions?

Does the paperwork have to match the loco number exactly ?

MZ class is example,no class designator THis may have changed with addition of number boards

I heard the frame was made for quite a few months and left in Port Augusta for sometime before transport it to Cardiff.

I was taking to the Terminal Operator at the time he was doing his ticket for the movement and those chains had very little if ant movement in them at all.
The only one that had a bit of play was the chain around the knuckle on the A end of the loco.

It must be just how the light is catching them in the photo's then i suppose that make them look a bit slack. Smile
Thanks for putting the photo's up mate Very Happy

Thing I can't work out is the top of the frame looks like its painted in the cream as if its supposed to be the engine room. But looking at how the cab folds around at the back and the superstructure makes it look like a hood unit. Wouldn't it have been easier to use a Q frame (ie monoque) seeing there's already a design for them?

People keep telling me that H3 was "renumbered 101" when it was painted yellow. I have photos of both sides soon after it was painted, when it was first in service in Dynon, and it had no external numbers anywhere. It did have SCT and V/Line badges, but no number.

It was later repainted in SCT colours and is now in Islington SA numbered back to H3.

I don't believe it ever carried the number 101, certainly not outside the cab.

And it doesn't matter, it has its original class and number back now.

Spotted what i guess is the second SCT frame to arrive in Newcastle this afternoon. It was at Morandoo this afternoon coupled to 8107. I'm not sure when its headed to EDI.

Dear M636C

Actually H3 was renumbered 101 but as you correctly stated it never wore the number.  The reason for it being renumbered was because Victoria already had an H3 (T class series 5) and this avoided confusion.

sorry to be a pain but are the new locos going to be double ended?
