I was refereeing my school sports day today at the Santos athletics stadium and I saw 2 NR class "Ghan" coloured locomotives come from the terminal end of the yard and reverse to the turntable turnout, then push forward onto the turntable so 1 loco was just forward of the turntable and the other loco was actually on the turntable. the 2 locos then uncoupled and the loco on the turntable was turned around very quickly by the electric turntable. they were then recoupled together and proceeded out of the turntable road and back to the Keswick platform. I nearly cried with joy to see this turntable used as I thought that it was disused!
has anyone else seen this turntable get used before?
is it a regular occurrence for PN to turn GSR locos there or is this a special once off?
