Hi all

Aurizon's only 'Eagle' 4000, #4002 arrived in Townsville yesterday on 8273. It looks like it will be joining several first series 4000s working out of Stuart which now include 4001, 4003, 4004 (I think) and 4013. Not sure about the status of the second series 4000s that have been here for the last year, but 4040 was on a fertiliser train last weekend, the others I haven't seen for quite a few weeks.

1215hrs - PN006 hauling down freight to Townsville as 82P9. Noticed the driver was wearing just a singlet and eating a pie at the same time.

Guessing PNQ isn't as pedantic on safety as QR/Aurizon?

Either that or he just lost his job due to your post!

He was probably having his meal break on the run and took his shirt off so as to not make a mess
I assume safety gear is not required in cab so no problem but if hat to leave cab then would put shirt or vest back on
Obviously proud of the image of being a PNQ driver

WTF does what the driver is wearing (or eating) in the cab have to do with safety?

ARHS QLD in Association with Sunshine Express Rail Tours runs a Santa Special every Year to Shorncliffe, Brisbane for a Sausage Sizzle Lunch... This year is no exception with Queensland Rail's BB18¼ No. 1089 doing the honours and seen passing through Nudgee on it's return Journey back to the City before heading down the Pinkenba Line...

Also for this Journey, due to some trackwork on the Tennyson Branch this service ran back to the city via Mayne and Normanby before continuing back down the Line and towards Pinkenba for a Circuit...

I would like to wish everyone on Railpage a Merry Christmas and hope you all have a great New Year...

  phil_48 Deputy Commissioner

Location: Wynnum North
Severe electrical storm just after 4.00 p.m. 5 large strikes nearby including at Wynnum Nth station. Most trains suspended. Here on Cleveland line at Wynnum Nth, trains have only just started running after 2 hours, however at slow speed. It looks one of the strikes hit on or next to Wynnum North Road boomgates, as they are stuck in an upright position. As I type police are controlling traffic and trains most likely proceeding through these gates on Order..
