[quote=2LaGrange]The 3 new standard gauge GT46ACE-2s will be going to their new owners after a paint job, it’s not PN,SCT or SSR.

There has been talk over the last 2 years at PN Coal about a 180T version of the TT that is to be built in the USA.

PN Coal loco's barely have enough time off trains to get serviced and the required repairs done. There is no time to put them into get paint.

Personally, the 90's and 82's have the best colour schem ...

[quote=piepants]I think with the first of the LDPs being out of paint now, it's safe to say that the last 3 units at Cardiff are joining the rest of the PN fleet as TTs. Not sure if they'll be ballast ...

Unloaded. Looks like it was in the cutting between the loop and the crossing.

In Newcastle we have Cardiff for the major stuff, Kooragang for the intermediate and minor stuff and Carrington Trip Shed and Greta for minor stuff. There is also a workshop at Werris Creek.

We already have [color=#000000][font=Roboto, wf_SegoeUI, Segoe UI, Segoe, Segoe WP, Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif][size=2]24 hour control center and remote monitoring of some locomotives. Looks l ...

Looks like there is a new PN loco near the front of the shed too. No numbers on the front of it. 9318 ?

The 2 pack (blue ones) was a trial set of wagons. There are a heap that have entered service, about 50 wagons, and another 50 or so down the wharf.

FIE 001 and FIE 002 are outside at BMD. These loco's are C44ACi's. GWU 011 is still unpainted, but is near the paint shed.

Save your money, if your camera is only 4 years old it still has a good 2 or 3 years left in it, and word is big things are ahead for Canon and Nikon over the next 3 years.

Just to add, I hate following an Aurizon train, they are very slow up the hills.

The Aurizon train with 3 loco's on it has 82 wagons and last time it passed me all 3 loco's were on line. It is the rake they are running to Gunnedah. From memory all 3 loco's were 5020's.
