NR33 is due to go under the Oxy Torch in the next month. That's if it hasn't been done already. When I heard 2 weeks ago. Rolling Eyes

What's an oxy torch? Does it mean that it'll be rebuilt or is it something else?

Cheers, NR26

Under the torch means that it's getting scrapped. From the phrase "under the scrapper's torch".

Because, I believe the technical term for a locomotive that was buried under 3,000 tonnes of train is catcus, fuctus, completus. Mr. Green

And the implications of having a cactus, fuctus, completus locomotive is you need to store it, when you could make a bit of $$ from what's left of it...

Here's the VicSig writeup on NR33 and HERE is the official NR33 thread. And even better, HERE'S the photo's from the derailment itself. Shows just how stupid some of the nation's truckies really are...

Alco957 curb your tongue an Alco and a GE are one and the same today, you can even get new covers etc for a old ALCO block that have both stamped on them, these are new ones not going back to when they were business partners. GE own the Alco catalogue now, they bought it a good few years back.

That is most probably why the NR's smoke a bit it is the ALCO in them coming out! Laughing

You're right KRviator. NR33 is entirely cactus, fuctus, completus. Now I clearly understand why the loco is going to get cut.

Fairbanks-Morse do, not GE. It even says so on their website and press releases. This has been discussed in several threads here

NR33 has a Pacific National coloured tarp Now that is odd...

Let's see how simmilar they are when a GE cocks a leg out of bed. If an ALCo does it, just weld up the block throw in a new power assembly and away you go. GE does it, time for a new block.

One of the 92's probably.  It has been stated that they will be used on Intermodal and Coal.

No I don't think it'll be a 92 class it may be replaced by building a 2nd Victorian built V class eg.(V544) I think that V543 (maybe) could be built

Cheers, NR26

V545 you mean, with G543 still being in traffic last time I looked.

- NR103_Pacnat



doubt that would happen NR103 Pacnat, Pacific National would be happy with 119 NR's and thats plenty of locos rostered for any run if needed or dispatched if they are needed to tow a failed loco. if they run short they could hire a loco and lease from CFCLA

I don't think the insurance payout covered the amount of rollingstock that was damaged in this accident, so for that reason alone there may not be a replacement loco. IF there were going to be one, then my money would be on an additional 92 Class.

No point having a single V class allocated to Intermodal. Means training crew's and a whole lot of other headaches.

Judging by the first photo on KRviator's site, there isnt much left to put the torch to.  Razz
