Trouble in the hills this morning with 3MP5 having issues and requiring two rescue locomotives from Adelaide to render assistance.

8210-8108 were dispatched from Islington to assist.




3MP5 returned sometime after with the 81 leading.  The video should look good. @Michelle12

Nope, was referring to 3MP5 which stalled just east of Mt Lofty.

It didn't go all the way to Melbourne like that, the locos were reversed again at Tailem Bend.

It's a Harsco Rail Mark VI tamping and lining machine. The top photo gives it away - the contraption with a whole bunch of little wheels on the left-hand side is the laser surveying unit, which extends out when the machine is being used to line the track at the same time as it tamps it.

Thanks for your reply.  Track machines have parked up in 2 road for the evening.

"Possible" snow forcast Thursday and overnight into Friday at Mount Lofty and higher peaks. Something may appear on the cams.
