I wonder if a freight train that was what may have been "struggling" with two NR classes, EL or AL looking (I was too far away) may have difficulties or "stall" say around Awaba, Wyee, or maybe Hawkesbury River?

Most other freight trains on the stretch I saw it usually make it easy up the grade.

Hi 4206, the "issue" is that a loco caught fire, but I note that NSW TrainLink are not saying what it was.

See: http://www.theherald.com.au/story/3827806/train-evacuated-after-cardiff-fire-video-photos/?cs=305

I knew it would've been a PN train even before I saw the photos/videos.  Looks to be an NR class.
  Piston Train Controller

The fire in the NR loco was reported to have started around 5.0am. Seeing it is around 2.0pm now why has it taken over 9 hours to clear the line?

Surely they could have dropped a loco onto the front and dragged the train clear and re-opened the line? Its not as if it is a derailment and vehicles and locos to be re-railed.

It doesn't appear to have been well handled.

Anyone know why it's taken so long to re-open the lines?
  Newcastle Express Chief Commissioner

Trains are running with delays. Looks like they started running just after you posted Piston.
