David this question involves you so you may answer it but maybe you should and wait and see if anyone else can.

the question: There is a set of Privatley owned carriges at DVR, The set is owned by 5 different people or basicaly a owner to a car, What is the name of those carriges?

Also if i have stuffed this up David will certainly correct my mistake. Wink

No I won't let's see if anyone can work it out.  I'll give  a hint now:

1.  They often appear behind the X44 & Y121 alot.
2.  Hairyman saw two of them at Wagga last year.

Even though it was Sam's  question, as a KATD owner I can say you are correct. There are actually 6 owners if one wants to be picky, but 5 is  known more.  So I guess you can ask a question.

Wouldn't be Eudlo as the 2nd loco would it ?

I remember seeing a ex DVR loco when I visited there in '99, or was it '98, the year of the failed Castledare convention and the Bunbury AALS "last minute"  rescue.

(BTW if I'm right Sammm D got the line of reaosning right, so "if" I'm right, Sammy D get's the next question. If I'm wrong, more thinking to do.....

I'll give you that one sammy, it was Coolum. it was built for a man here in Perth who then had to sell it, hence it went to Victoria and DVR...

On a slightly different note but in reply to a comment posted by Dthead, the 98 convention was actually going to be cancelled if the AALS, got there way, it was us here in the west that did some fast talking and moved it to Bunbury (where it will be held again this year)

you're move Sammy.

"Sammy D"


The first two numbers "93" stand for the year they were build. The second two numbers, either 01 or 02 for each repective loco, represent the number of each loco. Ie, Tom Thumb is 9301 and Joyce is 9302. Tom THumb was built first and thats what "01" stands for etc.....
