That's great news. Good to see them giving back to the community. Hoping it gets painted green and red though.

Thanks Jarroo. Yeah that's the article that I based my question on. Perhaps andrew1996 should go have a read.

Great to hear that an early GM is being set aside for it. Was afraid that they'd all en ...

At one stage DD592 was listed as a second loco as well as the S to be part of the Wheatbelt Heritage Rail Project. Is this not still the case?

The track speed is 80kph both directions. However there has been a temporary speed restriction between Cockburn and near Kewdale of 40kph in the northerly direction as you put it for a couple of years ...

Many thanks.
Would they be stored at Merredin, perhaps? That's probably better asked in the WA forum but I'll try here first.
If the WW and WWA are comparitively large and ...

Brookton

How would a loco being built in China be a NG version of an 1100 class when they were built in the US, they would be nothing alike.

Im with JNSymes. I would put my money on them being for the export coal contract in Bunbury WA.

At the moment they don't. If trains need to be stabled they use CBH sidings out bush to park them up.
For major wagon and loco maintanance, they have pits and a small siding at Avon Yard and I believ ...

They were driving from CBH 005 which was coupled to the train on its own. The locos do run in pairs but to shunt Brookton they have to be split up because there isn't enough room to run around the tra ...

GSRailway - I would like to know how you saw both locos over the dead end when only one loco was involved. The other loco was up the other end of the siding near the silos.

Don't let the truth get  ...

It is in the advanced planning stages though. I have been hearing about it for over 12 months now.

WAGR - yes the bulk coal handling harbour isn't expected until around 2016 but as a way of exporting coal in the meantime, the coal miners will be running containerised coal trains which can easily be ...

The ballast train currently running on the Wongan Hills line has nothing to do with QUBE, they are 100% being operated by Watco with Watco hiring the ZB's from Greentrains.

YM-Mundrabilla, I don't know what makes you think the CBHN is the same body size as the CBHS. I drive these trains and the CBHN is a noticeably smaller wagon.

I will look through the manuals and ge ...

Tiny I don't know where I read it but I think it was in the Queensland forums a few months ago, Qube have a new contract in Queensland, I think on the Townsville line.

Apart from the lack of bogies, what is the general condition of 1501. Is it a possibility that she could be restored to operational condition fairly easily?

You guys do realise their talking about the Perth suburban network and not the whole of WA dont you? There is nothing positive about WA regional transport.

SKVT, the DA would most likely have been carrying out a brake test. All trains on the Brookfield network are required to have a brake test inspection done every 48 hours. When the brake test is conduc ...
