Toowoomba Sat 5/10, QR loco 2415 standing closed down in the dock platform at the station. Maybe used with the perway branch wagons seen in the distance out in the yard.

[quote=M636C][quote]Aaaha! I hadn't heard before of coal on this line. I have a recollection from the mid to late 1950s of seeing a train of tender loco and about 6-8 4W hopper wagons. This was in my ...

[quote=marvin]OK, so now a potted history.

1. In the early days, coal from the Burragorang (Warragamba), Oakdale and The Oaks mines was transported by (small) truck to the coal loader at Narellan.

Another interesting transport aspect of Gundagai is that it was the last town in Australia where the postman travelled by horse.

The real problem is Australia has no 5-6,000 m high mountain range. My proposal is to excavate a HUGE inland sea, the Eyre Sea, and use the spoil from it to make the aforementioned mountain range. It  ...

Thanks Bevan.

Great, thanks Bevan.

I'll second WW's description of the noise level. When with PMG/Telecom these were the noise in the background or not heard at all. My interests lay in transmission so I escaped having to adjust these  ...

The descriptions of the displays are added. There are about two dozen displays recorded out of the 70 odd in the exhibition guide. I was there from a bit after 2pm and was chased out just after the 5p ...

I was there for a while this afternoon. Yet another great exhibition.

Some snaps of my time there. Written info tomorrow... Good night.

Excellent Bevan, thanks for showing.

The Westlander was stored in Toowoomba station over the weekend, presumably due to trackwork between Toowoomba and Brisbane. Loco 2414 was on the cars.

A shay loco is being statically restored/rebuilt at Ravensbourne Qld. It previously worked at timber tramway between here and the Toowoomba - Crows Nest branch at Hampton. See the website for more inf ...
