Qube loco now running trains, does anyone know if they are from Kewdale or Kwinana? Is there now 3 operators?

It does feel like there are more trains coming through.

Strange double header just came through, watco and a qube loco.  Never seen a qube on this route before.

This is starting to sound like an episode of utopia

I have noticed that recently Watco are running single loco’s where there were running double headers.  I don’t know if the loco model is different but they look the same as the double headed loco ...

The light engine move seems to be happening regularly now, I know it’s coming because the horn sounds different.  As I said before maybe driver training?

Steve where do the containers go once they get to the rail yard in terms of destination?

[quote=steve_w_1990]I'll be very curious to see how the NIMBY's that want the freight line to have curfews (or best case scenario for them, complete removal) placed on their operations will react.

Maybe the National Pacific loco was a route learning exercise?

At 11.15am a Pacific National loco ran light engine towards Fremantle through South Freo, unusual as you don't see many Pacific National locos on this line and also because its without a train.  There ...

I should have also said that the number of trains per day has increased quite a lot, I am not sure of the number but I thinks it is at least 8 in each direction per day.

Due to the short distance that needs to be duel gauge to take freight into the port it would be short sighted not to future proof by having duel gauge for any narrow gauge that may one day happen.

A few minutes ago a yellow maintenance truck on rail wheels headed south through south fremantle, from where I am I could not see if it was on standard gauge or narrow gauge.

If the Indian Pacific was to terminate in Fremantle, I would see a lot more carriages behind a national pacific loco in the future lol.  It’s a great idea but of course it would mean the ip would by ...

Today a national pacific loco pulling some carriages went past South Fremantle going south. I think it was a track inspection train.

By the time the Mandurah line is extended to Bunbury these trains will be retired lol. Also the existing line runs through towns where the route from Mandurah runs through nowhere.

That seems a long way round, so the containers are taken to Kwinana then brought to Fremantle?  The Kalgoorlie freighter must travel to Perth as a single stack?  Is the Kwinana thing due to Forestfiel ...

I was travelling along Russel Rd this morning and was stopped by a ARG Container train.  I always thought that the trains that run along the freight line to the Fremantle port were container trains fr ...

There have been attempts to increase the number of containers over the years, but it gets bashed by groups with agendas.
