FYI There are not legal issues in receiving any radio emission, its what you do with it that may attract interest and that de ...

I've attached a photo below showing what I saw. This was just past the Range Road bridge at Whittingham. A whole line of coal wagons, loaded, heading towards Newcastle, but at the head, no locos!

Fuel shed for Xstrata.Ahh, thanks for the info. Is Bulga the only XCN site getting this facility, or will there be others? Does this suggest there is any XRN presence at the Bulga Site/XCN Corp site,  ...

Odd question I suppose, but there is a new shed/building being built on site at Bulga Coal that spans the rail line. Does anyone know what this is?Thanks,

Obviously in fenced areas the fence should be the limit, but curious what a drivers opinion is when foamers/photographers get too close to the lines. In unfenced/open access areas, how close is too cl ...

When signalling infrastructure is removed or replaced, what happens to the old equipment? Rail crossing lights, for example, do they get refurbished and re-used elsewhere, or disposed of?An example w ...

I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned in this thread... Probably because it isn't related to train tracking Wink lolI've seen it on other threads however, the key differe ...

ok, this is one of those stupid hypothetical questions :)Now I know most modern diesel freight (coal) trains are diesel electric, and that most of the sound you hear from the laboring is from the gen ...

The artc timetables is the best that is available at the moment but I, like many others, would thoroughly enjoy live train tracking. Is this information publically/freely available, or only to people ...

I must be blind then, or just really bad timing to have never seen one before now Smile lol!

So if they're going to carrington, they'd still have to pass through singleton -> branxton, etc, wouldn't they?

Just looked it up, sure is Smile

I take it these trains don't typically travel further towards the coast, I've not seen this livery around before, but rarely travel to/past muswelbrook, normally around ...
