Pretty uninspiring thread topic. Wanna consider changing it to "Update on Narrow Gauge Rolling Stock at PBR?

Better still, use it to inform others when the next Monthly News is available for viewing online like the late Graeme Breydon did (aka Chairman).

The July edition has been online for about a week now:

"darcycammo"


I think this is a typo. It's meant to be 1NB.

Does anyone have a photo of 3a in storage or for that matter the interior of the shed?

I think "in storage" actually means about 412 separate pieces stored from one end of the railway to the other.

Someone said that 3A's frame was a bit bent. Wasn't 12A's frame slightly bent and straightened out?

These continual postings advising of Monthly News being online have nothing to do with the subject of this thread. I suggest that if there is a desire to advise of this, then there should be a thread devoted to it and leave this thread for postings related to the subject.
  VBAndy Chief Commissioner

Alright, let's split the topic. Once that's done there will be two posts left in this thread that are months old. Really seem like a good idea now?

I thought I was doing some a good turn. The original post for the thread was not much more than a cut-and-paste from the Monthly News anyway.

Given I have been doing it for over 6 months I question the timing..... Confused

May I suggest that if this is a problem, that perhaps you might be able fill the void...?
The Monthly News contains reports on PBR's rollingstock, so I don't see a problem with it being linked here.

Just out of curiosity, I know this sounds a stupid question, but are all of PBR's engines (except for the new garrat) of Australian origin/type? The little red stem engine looked American, kind of like the logging engines and some of the other stuff looks almost Toy Train like, like the Darjeeling trains (B class steamers?).
