Everyday QR Network Observations

Out and about today at Harvey's Siding again. I got some usable footage with the Z1U, but there seems to be a conflict between my Ver 11.1 of Pinnacle and my x64 ver of Windows 7. I found I could capture only about a minute or so of the first clip, but guess that's a story for another theme.

I was in place for about 4 hrs and saw these:-
PN 001 on a southbound container, then, a few minutes later,
PN 002 on a northbound container.
2212 and 2466 multi on the southbound Sunlander, followed by
Southbound Tilt train that appeared to have no number on it. ( I think there was a logo of some sort but was unable to read what it was due to speed. Then,
Northbound "City Of Rockhampton" Tilt Train.
All the passenger services were late by my reckoning. The 2 Tilt Trains crossed at Tamaree I think, as I got caught out by assuming they would cross at Gympie North and was not ready when the "City" came through.
Harvey's seems to be a good spot for spotting.. lol. Straight track with a curve at each end, it seems like a kilometer in each direction. It's on the top of a slight rise. Not big enough to call a bank, one can see right to the bends on each end of the yard.  I'm planning on going out again tomorrow to look for another location north of Gympie.

Shawn posted some photos he took yesterday which featured 2355 and 2171D. I saw them today, going thru' North Arm on their way south at 6.23am.
I was on my way to the Rosewood area, hoping I'd get a few coal train videos. This time I was in luck. None are good enough to post, but of today's effort, the best one was taken handheld. I'd found a location at Wulkuraka I liked, then continued to Rosewood to the site I used last time I was  there. I had only just gotten out of the car when a train approached from the west. Luckily I still had battery and tape fitted, so it was a sort-of shoot from the hip type of thing.
I do have some photos of a C17 that were taken today.I've yet to inspect them but think they are not suitable for this site. the C17 is owned by the RAAF.. lol. They were doing training flights (circuits and bumps).

Would have been 6C55 Cairns cement train. The open wagons each side of the KSR are cover wagons as the KSR car has the old hook and chain couplers.

The KSR carraige wasn't KCV 3501 or a gold class car was it ? KCV 3501 is a Davidson guards van.
