So many dust storms have effected Western New South Wales and even Sydney through this dry/ Drought period in late 2019. This was about the 4th I had experienced going to or from Parkes in a 6 week period. this one was by far the worst. It had started around lunch time in Parkes and we headed into it and stayed with it till around Yass.
In this photo we are crawling into Wirrinya, Between Parkes and Cootamundra on the cross country line, with NR91/ NR93 on PN super freighter 6AB6 from Adelaide to Brisbane. We had struggled a bit with air filter issues restricting the power from the locos due to the dust.
Compare this photo with my previous post which is only taken around 500 metres in front of this photos.
