TasRail has no desire to open disused lines,  rather they seem to support ripping them up for bike tracks / rail trails.  1.47 million just announced to rip up the NE Line for a bike track.  Pathetic  ...

Hi folks,

I thought some folks may be interested to know that DTT have released at 2015 Tassie Train Calendar. It features a few ex QR locos and plenty of English Electrics.

DTT are again doing a Train Calendar,  the 2015 calendar is $19.95 + postage and is available via there website.  Direct Debit or PayPal are the payment options this year.

With a ZC, CD, BC, open access and a brake conversion, you'll be able to compete in both the bulk and intermodal markets.......


What a pathetic comment..

I see the DTT folks have calendar out,  good work guys!  The sample pics look great & great work teaming up with TasRail.

What time has the log train been departing Brighton?

In other words they would manually release the brakes and let them roll clear of the points.

Mark was very powerful, being Ed's right hand man at the time.  We had a Safe Working system that had worked since AN, no reason to change to Track Warrants other than Mark wanted the "American syste ...

It was changed because Mark Rosner wanted it changed,  no other reason.  Same reason as why we went to the Track Warrant system,  because Mark wanted it.At Ausrail, Damien White told me that the lo ...

I hardly see what the previous posts have to do with DTT,  perhaps the conversation should be moved to different thread.

They will continue to make all the excuses under the sun to try and keep passenger trains off the network.

I think it is unlikely the current heritage operators will ever get back on active mainlines in their own right,   I do however see a possibility of private operators with plenty of cash getting on t ...

2116 & 2117.  2115 being kept for parts for 2114.

And funding for a new (2nd hand) carriages, ex TGR stock is getting a little tired.  The ex South African steel carriages at HVR could be a good buy if the money was available.

2062 was seen on the southern outlet this morning heading to the scrap yard.

Depending on the setup at Bell Bay they could containerise the coal in open top containers from Fingal. There will need to be significant infrastructure built to use the HF's at BB.

MKA's aren't 1800, may say they are. They are a lot less than that. They are about 1400.

Oh... ok..had always thought they were. Most info suggests 1800 hp.

Duly noted..   but interesting as ...

Apologies if I've offended anyone, the comment I was most annoyed about was "As I said a couple of days ago, the workshop will be contracted out....." - this is completely unfounded, untrue, & potenti ...

I can confirm that the four locos have been purchased by TasRail and all employees were told through the various internal communications.  There is no reason to announce to the world that they have pu ...

Could have been more scrap money for DRR.   Locos being roaded to Melbourne.

I am guessing the morons don't bother to save the couplers and draft packages out of it either.......

Nothing changes down there, right from day 1 there has been opportunities to get or save variou ...
