Im trying to gt my head around the nuances of QR safeworking and had some questions.
In QLD, are freight locomotives required to be fitted out with the AWS system like the sparks are, to run in suburban Brisbane?
Also, what does the DTC unit look like, and is it a fixed thing that is fitted to each loco cab, or is it a portable unit that crews plug into 'wired' up cabs? Any pix would be great!
If it is a permanent in-cab thing, are most units done/fitted out or are there 'trailing unit only' locos out in the Aurizon fleet because its not worth spending the money on?
With regard to the radio systems, is there a standard unit - or has ICE made its way north?
Thanks for everyones help!
