I didn't mean to flame. I was worried about how people seem to be pretty hard on people here.

Autistic Spectrum Disorder promulgating a lack of Tact is perhaps the reason?

I'm afraid I don't understand the question.

cuthbert is drawing a long bow in that, as a few members here have a form of Autism, and some of those members use it as a crutch to cause a fuss and then play the "woe is me" card, they are implying that is what you were doing. I, and most other members here, couldn't give a damn either way what someones personal situation is, we just come here for the discussion.

I still don't think you attacked anyone with your post, so please don't feel as though you are not welcome here.

Back on topic.

I still haven't finished checking my 5 days NSW country trip in early March due to work pressures.

However, I found Maitland was around 75%+ new locos so not the best for "heritage" locos.

If you define heritage as older than 20 years, I found Wherris Creek and the wheaties trains were great as were the lines up to Parkes.

Manildra was enjoyable with quad 48's but the Botany trip locos Trent mentioned were also good.

Plenty of heritage locos between rush hours in Sydney in the right spots.

Cheers

Thank you for explaining Riachase,

And thank you for your support and encouragement and welcome. I think you seem very clear on matters... I guess I shouldn't have used capital letters. All the same, I worry about how some people seem to jump to conclusions. Even for someone that doesn't have autism or any other related challenges I still think that the way people have responded to others or apparently even to myself as a newcomer is a bit too hard (admitting that I was very forthright myself!).

I will check in from time to time but I will not contribute anything else to the forum since my only contributions appear to have had a negative effect.

Bear in mind that although you see a lot of it from an outside point of view, it is often "the usual suspects" either asking questions repeatedly (that they've already had answered elsewhere), or "the usual suspects" attacking people for the most pointless of things. These forums have some very knowledgeable people who generally only "speak" when they have reason to, which is why their posts might seem to get lost in the flow of banter.

I will check in from time to time but I will not contribute anything else to the forum since my only contributions appear to have had a negative effect.


I'm sorry to hear this, and hope that in time, reading the forums, you'll see the pattern and eventually change your mind. That said, there are some threads that I open and just click "subscribe to thread", because someone's already asked a question I would be interested in seeing answered, and then I just sit back and read the discussion. One can learn a lot that way! I just hope that you're not scared to ask questions  Shocked

Since QUBE brought the ex-IRA loco's, I want to keep score on everything as of now and their statuses.

The Red Terror 44's are now all stored in various areas

4461: stored at Minto, along with 4483
4463: overhauled at Junee Railway Workshops
&
4498: still stored at Cook's River, St James Siding

While the Silver Streak 44's are all operational?

BTW, I dubbed the livery name for 4458, 4488 & 4497.

As the instigator of this thread - could I request an update of where Clapped Out D/E Loco's may be found in commercial operation (if any remain so). I will be back in town next week and would like to hunt down endangered species if possible

I reckon 607 should be overhauled, renumbered back to 600 and painted in the CR style maroon & silver livery with the SAR eagle symbol attached to her.

602 is now in Greentrains livery and nearly ready for operations. I have no idea on the whereabouts of 603

Anyways I'm going over to Parkes tomorrow and see what else is new around the Gemco Depot.

I've been looking on Flickr and It seems that both 4458 & 4488 are up for repairs at Minto, while 4497 is now stored at Cook's river and being graffitied on recently, idiots thinking that spraying on a locomotive is fun.
