Yes the train was moving, as the sound moved away and grew fainter.

Before Normanhurst going Down, on the left hand side is an old siding with a building next to it.
Any information on this please?

Could anyone please detail or point me to a thread that addresses the issues this class has which are preventing itfrom entering service?
Posted 05 Jan 2016 12:09 in Locomotives and Rolling Stock by blacktails1985
Could anyone please list all the modifications made to the MZs before they were put into service here?
Is the driver on the right? And does he have a wheel or normal controls?

I came to that figure as well. But worked down to one loco, it calculates to 722 tonnes pulled by one loco.

Thanks for that info.
Would the train above be coming back full just as it is? Or would the full train be shorter because of the extra weight?

And what happens to Newcastle station? Will the government do another end run to avoid its heritage status so it can be demolished?

Its just me, but I think having both heavy and light rail wouldve been more beneficial.
