Well, I got 100%, just as well....

However, the question about GM1's delivery...

I don't think there were any broad gauge power bogies at the time of GM1's delivery.
My recollection is that it was hauled from Albury to Port Pirie on spare VR S class tender bogies.

It did work a train to Albury, of course.

Nice work M636C.

You are correct, of course.

Locomotives and Railcars of the Commonwealth Railways, page 56, says: "It later worked to Albury where broad gauge transfer bogies were fitted for the journey to Port Pirie."

I have re-worded that part of the quiz to reflect this information.

80%. The difference in the early 930s had me stumped.
I was thinking the other night, "Spletsie will probably put up a new quiz soon", and lo and behold, it happened! Smile

Thank you, Sir.

Well, my knowledge of this subject suggested that my score would likely be 0%, but with a lot of flukes, I managed 50%!
Another good one @Spletsie!

Not many advantages to being old.
The main one being that it doesn't last.Rolling Eyes
Toss up between worrying about the future or the lack of it ..............Smile
