Diesel preservation in Queensland is virtually non-existant I'm afraid. 1620 is perhaps the only notable one.
Pretty much covers it, despite the Queensland Diesel Restoration Group being setup ... it's still a long road ahead.
Here's a familiar face out and running, looks good and should go faster in red. -
Thanks to South African Railway News.
The haulage of Rovos Rail's charter from South Africa to Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) and back is occasionally used as a "shakedown" for new locos or rebuilds, The following Rovos charter was hauled by a new build RRL Gringrod GT26C-3, painted in CFCO Congo livery (CFCO CC1203)
Dreaming of a holiday that I may never get to have, I stumbled onto this youtube clip on a Rovos trip to Dar es Salaam. Look what was on the pointy end from Victoria falls (go to the 31 min mark) a pair of former 2600 class locos in red. I never imagined seeing them 20 years ago at Pring, that they will eventually be crossing Victoria Falls in Africa!
Paul Moss has taken this great shot of more locos to be shipped.Shipped where?
Those 422's are SG, so assume new bogies will be used.......?.Initially it was thought that the four 422 in SA would go on NG bogies,
