The "o" after 5908o 5916o is probably because both were oil burners.

Well the in part reference is to the fact that what was provided is useful in its own way, personally i'd cosider that for a line that was deiselised so early these listings are the dreggs of steam, not listings from the end of the steam era, but the response is my fault for not putting enough detail into the original question. To be really specific, i am looking for references to the last 12 and 13 classes allocated to Grafton for banking and shunting, and the last 30t's allocated to casino for use on the branch connections, 3102 as mentioned above is useful. But recently i have read information to suggest late in the game, read early 60's both classes could be found at 'pilly' performing shunting duties. But SOG and CSI allocations are of most interest at this time but any information welcomed.

Peter Neve's book shows no 12 or 13 class allocated to Casino at all - the first listing is 1 July 1964. The locos assigned to South Grafton and Yeerongpilly came from Casino.

As well as 3102, 3005 is shown as allocated to Casino in the 1964 and 1965 listing.

Thanks John. I'm not really surprised at there being no 12 or 13's allocated to the coast anywhere after '64, the 48's and mainline diesels had arrived by then which i think would have made banking the passenger trains out of Grafton or Gurranang obsolete, and with the exception of those to be preserved these classes days would have been over, hopefully someone more knowledgable the me could confirm.... Similarly, i'm actually shocked to read 30t and 32 classes still represented in the mid to late 60's on the coast. Again, thanks.

I just found my copy of Australian Diesel Scene 1 published by Eveleigh Press. There is a story in that one about early diesel days on the NSW North Coast. There is a picture of 1308 on page 63 residing at Coffs Harbour being used as a yard shunter in 1962. There is also a reference that it was as of January 1st 1963 still attached to Casino but was being used as a yard shunter at Kempsey as the regular shunter was off getting repairs.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for these lists as I have been looking for them for quite a few years! Curious where you found them, assuming it is a source you can publicly mention, as I don't want you to destroy someone's privacy.

Perhaps use personal message if name is sensitive as I will protect source's privacy. Cheers Peter Cokley
