Can rollingstock be railed out?
fred59
Yes (in theory*) - 8014 was recently railed IN (from Werris Creek) to be scrapped. LVR have cars and locomotives based there.

*Obviously if some of the... ahh... more "weathered" items are not fit to enter the network, they wouldn't be able to be railed out, of course.

From what I was told, They're not squatters?

In other news I did see something wooden in tuscan with a tarp over the majority at the end of Weakley's drive Beresfield heading onto the freeway as I was exiting. Anyone hear what else has gone?

There is a few good plans for the R class but there not comfirmed yet, but in time as they have a lot to sort and do there with rolling stock.

Hi guys,

Please forgive me for digging up and old thread but i'd like to understand what has become of the Rothbury Collection (Aside from the 10 class that are going to Dorrigo of course). Is anyone in a position to be able to definitively say what the current state of things is? i.e.What's been saved and where it's gone/going; what's been scrapped etc.

PLEASE DON'T USE THIS AS AN EXCUSE TO RANT OR REKINDLE A FLAME WAR!!!!

Thanks.

Yes, it would be good to know, especially the status of the former Southern Aurora stainless steel cars, such as the DAM car.  Are there any Brisbane Limited Express sleeping cars in the collection?

As I understand it, most of the former Southern Aurora NAM and LANs are in the process of going to a new home/s, as is the DAM.   The new owners are generally reluctant to say anything publicly until such time as the stock has been successfully moved from the site.   Similarly, the DEB cars have been spoken for.   Two CPH rail motors have been returned to Cowra.   Electric locomotive 4627 and inter-urban power car CF5001 have been purchased by members of SETS.   The ex-NSW cars purchased by QR have since been scrapped as they were without bogies.   A number of wooden cars, including the wiring cars, have been scrapped.   Many 12-wheelers have been marked as if they have been sold and awaiting transfer.
"The Railway News" seems to be the only magazine really attempting to cover movements of items from Rothbury.   The last two issues have certainly had considerable detail, extending well beyond the acquisition of the SMR-10 class by Dorrigo.

Assuming that this advice includes EVD 1513 ?

Thanks for the update hunslet1915.

I'm so glad that the Aurora cars, especially the unique DAM, will be saved.  It will be interesting to see when they will be moved off the site and where they are destined.

I would really appreciate it if you could post any updates on the Aurora cars when they become known.

Thanks again.

Regards

Campaspe.
