With timetables set to be altered in a few weeks time i recorded some of the movements as they were on the North Coast. First through was 6422 which was sighted at Warrell Creek behind 8116 AND 48101. Next through was NT36 sighted at Kerewong loop. Sliding through next was 7WB3 first sighted at Moorland behind NR49 NR4 and NR76. Almost getting through unseen was NR73 and NR65 with a very early 1BM2 which crossed 7WB3 at Telegraph point at 12.30pm. Next to make an appearance was NT33 and NT32 which due to the delays brought on by Daylight saving saw NT32 and NT33 cross at Tamban instead of the usual Kundabung loop. 6AB6 behind NR36 NR2 ans NR56 was next through sighted running through Kemspey. Rounding out the day and the daylight was LDP006 and LDP001 with the late running 7MB7 sighted running through Raleigh.

An early star t yesterday was rewarded with 6422 rolling through Coffs Harbour station just before 6am behind solo 8133. Next sighting was NT36 sighted leaving Urunga. A brief pause in action before 7WB3 was sighted between Kendall and Herons Creek behind NR29 NR80 NR63, it was sighted again at Telegraph Point Kempsey where it crossed NT32, and Cockburns Lane Warrell Creek. Next to roll through was NR26 and D/a NR95 on a lightly loaded 1BM2, It was sighted at Warrell Creek Eungai and Kundabung, Next through was NR57 NR68 NR117 with 6AB6 which at first glance you could have mistaken for WB3 due to the steel loading, as it rolled through Kundabung, Rounding out the day was the late running 7MB7 behind LDP004 LDP001 and 42206, sighted at Telegraph Point and Warrell Creek.

I am interested in North Coast workings but I am fairly new to it. How do you identify the train numbers? I am led to believe that using the ARTC timetable is unreliable although my few observations at Coffs and Glenreagh have seen close to on-time running.

DL1554  its basically hit and miss at times or long waits trackside, there is not hard and fast rules, anything going through Sydney can and does get delayed badly. Sometimes you win sometimes you loose with them.
