Miscellaneous NSW sightings

Not finding a thread in which to mention it, I thought it might be an idea to have a miscellaneous NSW sightings thread for those one-off type things ...

To start the ball rolling, saw an Interail 423 (42302 I think, but could be wrong) go light engine through Granville (towards Clyde) this arvo ... I had a camera on me (well, my wife did), but it caught me by surprise and didn't get a pic. Sad

Anyone know where she was going from/to?

-----

While I'm at it, I also saw in the ARG compound two Ls side by side - one Interail, and one ARG. Immediatly outside the compound were 8144 and 48164


Also in Clyde yard were X48, X52, and a PN coloured X (X5?):


A good variety of colour in a small space. Very Happy

On a more unusual note was a NPRY cement hopper on the Maintrain side of the main lines. Shocked

It has now moved and has a partner in crime - there's one Railcorp orange 48 at either end of the shed that the AK cars are kept in - spacing between them seems to be about 3 AK cars in length ... couldn't tell what was inbetween though. Wink

This morning that funny looking self-propelled track recording unit whizzed by Ashfield towards Central - can't remember the code (LS039?), but it had wedge shaped cabs at both ends.

"42101"


RVX4 would be the designation you be looking for?

Cheers for that - was fairly confident on the 039, but couldn't remember the letters. Embarassed

Was quite a surprise for this (at the time) half asleep gunzel.

Two nice sightings for me at Central today - the first, whilst I have seen it a few times before, I never had a photo of - being the only V set nose livery I didn't have a pic of (blue/yellow stripes) ... probably got it just in time too:


Then finally I saw an MZ in the flesh - with numberboards to boot!


Dunno why it was there - maybe clearance testing before tomorrow's tour? They were just running it back and forward ...

A pity I only had the phone with me - better than nothing though. Wink

I would guess crew familliarisation for 3801 Ltd blokes for tomorrow's trip down the coast. I doubt IRA would be providing (or indeed have) crews for working a passenger train to Kiama. I also doubt if any of the '01 Ltd drivers would have been previously qualified for MZ's. There would have to be some ground instruction at some point and this could well be it in progress.

Good point - I had assumed crew would come with the loco, but it does make more sense that would be the reason ... I wonder how they like the steering wheel? Razz

Deviating from the Helga posts, we past Cs4(?) light engine on the up on Singleton bank at about 04:50 this morning. When we got to Muswellbrook, there was a container train stowed in the yard (minus loco). Anyone know where the C class went?
