Looks like DownsSteam (Darling Downs Historical Railway Society) have scored some soon to be retired M series 'Lander cars and have a grand plan for them.

It would seem that they are to get another diesel loco from QR, but the article doesn't mention this. The current diesel loco which is almost ready to go, 1172, would likely not be suitable to pull such a train.

Interesting times...

Any idea what the railmotor from Tasmania might be, the only one that I can think of that was for sale was DP 13/14 that Burnie Council had available.

That's the only one i can think of too, trouble is DP13 was burnt by vandals, not sure if it has been deemed to be rebuildable or not.

Little sad if they are going to Qld, but at least they'll get used there, they aren't likely to move from Burnie otherwise.
