Toad,Thanks for that M636C.
On the off chance you havent worked them out yet:
The leading car is AK 1 ex 500
The third car is BKL 3 ex 600
The second and fourth cars are BK1 ex 702 and BK 2 ex 703 (but not neccessarily in that order)
Oh silly me, going by the thread title I assumed this was a reference to some blue coaches being used on the bustitution of a Bacchus Marsh service, rather than the old blue carriages used several years ago. Silly me.
Well said. Coaches are hauled by horses. Carriages are hauled by locomotives on rails.
In the Pilbara, we use the term coach for passenger rolling stock.(What little there is of it). Most of the terms used by the railroads up there are "american", however there is some australian terms comining in now that most of us are coming under the rail regulator.
