2150, ex TGR Y class No. 1, returning after a few weeks at East Tamar workshops, near its birth place, Launceston


I had some great plans for stunning pics near the foreshore but, as paper train rolled im, i was a fair way up Formby Rd. Then grabbed lunch as the other train went through to Burnie.

Enjoy

IMHO the new TasRail livery looks pretty damn good on everything I've seen it applied to... Wink

The yellow roof on the hood is new!
Seems like a waste since it will be black in two weeks anyway  Smile

Nope, the yellow is same age as the cab. Only one area that's black, around the exhaust

Great to see this impressive looking (imho) foursome leading 35 into Hobart this morning. A relatively small wagon consist looked out of keeping with the potential power of the locos.  Will the northbound train be worthy of having these four at the head.
Can any Railpage contributors comment on how effective these locos have been so far in Tas?

Cheers,

Interestingly enough note how close to the rail the cheese plant buildings are? Fonterra illegally built on land they didn't own! Tas govt sent them a bill for a figure of around 45k Smile for the 1 meter Strip of land they have used Smile

I have been scanning my old slide collection and came across these old slides from a holiday in Tasmania with some companions in 1973. They tolerated my penchant for train photos when we saw trains or rail related stuff. They thought Queenstown was a 'dump' but could not understand my total fascination for the place!!!
Anyway, I have scanned them and loaded them into Flickr.
Lets see if I can get these bookmarklets to work???

On the flickr photo page, there is a drop-down called "share". Select "BBCode" and chose what size version you want to put on Railpage, then copy the code and paste it into your Railpage post

Thank you Amraks and i-know-nothing for the tips.

I tried the BBcode cut and paste first and I think that it works OK, (well it does on preview), so lets see how it turns out when I submit.



Deloraine - Waiting for the Tasman Limited to turn up



Deloraine - They let the goods train that was sitting in the loop out first, so we drove down to the crossing to take a photo.



Seems I captured a nice shot of an "X" class (almost every state had an X class of some description - some even steam and diesel X Classes)...



Then the great moment for when the Tasman Limited arrived and we had to say our goodbyes....
(how I love to see Australias big name passenger trains roll through town)



I suspect that these timber wagons came off the Mole Creek Branch.



A comment left on my Flickr photo confirmed that this is a Z Class loco on the Mole Creek Branch....seems I got lucky as I appear to have been in the right time and place.

I have some other photos taken from the air of the 'broken' Tasman bridge in 1975, but not sure they are suitable for RP

regards to all RP fans in Tassie ( I still have a very soft spot for the place).

One additional tip to add to the above.....
When "Grabbing the HTML/BBCode" from the Flickr 'Share' Icon, click the addtional "HTML" button and not the "BBCode"
(the text is different).
While the photos appear in the 'Preview' if you paste the the "BBCode" they DO NOT appear after 'Submit'.

Would that photo of MA4 be beside the TGR station at Conara?

Well its definitely MA4. I seem to have some recollection that the station at Conara on the St. Marys Line didn't have a platform? So you could well be right Andrew.

Hello all,

I have posted a couple more old rollingstock scans from the early 80's to my Flickr page;



May be of interest to someone.

Cheers,
