Nice! Happy with my 85%, didn't expect that.I got 85% also but noticed that one question listed a 1210 class.
Thanks for the feedback br30453.Nice! Happy with my 85%, didn't expect that.I got 85% also but noticed that one question listed a 1210 class.
There was never a 1210 class on any Australian railway system.
All Queensland DELs were numbered in the 1200s when first introduced.
This was just a number in the sequential numbering of locomotives.
Later the they were grouped as the 1200, 1300,1400 and 1500 classes.
There was a locomotive numbered 1210 in Queensland later renumbered 1300 as the first of the 1300 class when DELs were renumbered into classes.
I am concerned with the question about SD70ACe-LC locomotives. more correctly SD70ACe-LCi type.Thanks Peter.
These were introduced by BHP Billiton and were later purchased by Fortescue Metals Group.
BHP also obtained ten "pumkin" SD70 ACe units from a BNSF order and nine more that were completed looking like Sd70ACe-LCi units.
But BHP has purchased around 170 SD70ACe - LC or LCi units to date.
So either BHP or FMG would be a correct answer for question 15.
