No Place Like Alice
Nice story but this is just one of several self serving bulletins recently issued by PN. Remember PN are only in the NT because of their Hook and Pull contract for GSR's Ghan service. In the scheme of things a very easy gig managing 1 round trip per week.
Cool article but did PN ever run freight to Alice ?
PN operated the yard only (shunting etc), the freight trains through Alice Springs are run by G&WA
PN used to operate the Alice Springs yard but sold those operations to G&WA a year or so ago.
(I believe at the same time G&WA sold Cook operations to PN)
Did PN use the Yard for freight operations and how many trains per week?
Australian national my father says also ran to Alice springs for many years with freight trains is this true?ok the time line goes like this :-
Is this years the actual hard used by the original Ghan?
How did PN end up managing the yard?
