Dimboola is becoming a busy place again.

And it appears on another thread that the CLP/Fs are to be scrapped!   Looks like the GM has been hiding in Portland avoiding the torch for a long while.

Looks like someone saw something on Facebook and copied it straight to here. I thought it might happen so I didn't give all the correct info out there to see if it happened by someone who didn't see the move. Yes the locos did leave. But there wasn't 7 or 8 wagons. There was actually 8 and a VAN

I'm not sure what the problem with that is? If the information is out in the community, why not put it on all outlets, not just Facebook group(s)?

My problem been. The way its posted is like he saw it. I have no problem with it been reported. But at least give credit like most others do. EG: Seen via a facebook group that this and that has happened.

Maybe I worded my post wrong. I do agree there is no problem just credit to where the information came from. Eg a facebook group etc..

True, a straight copy and paste of the information seems like it's the OP's sighting/information, when really it's not. I always like to put "heard from a friend/source elsewhere that..." before such information. Mostly in-case it's wrong Laughing

Hopefully this is the first move in a brighter future for GM36.

Are these all of the stored locomotives from Portland, or are there more still down there?

Portland yard is now completely empty of railway Rollingstock. There is a few vans and ex CFCLA grain containers at the yard.

SRHC's GM36 has been "hiding" in Portland due to a condemned wheel set (AFAIR), interesting to know if this has been rectified.
And as you can see from the photo above SRHC has done an excellent job with the upkeep of their premier Historic Exhibit Sad

Well they can always set up a "Club 36" as they did with C501, and see if any more trusting people cough up their hard-earned and then get dudded out of the promised ride behind it.

I know SRHC are a bit of an easy target, and just about everyone agrees they have got quite a bit wrong lately. That said though, the neglect of GM36 really came at the hand of El Zorro, It hasn't happened overnight, but overtime.

It came because SRHC forgot what it existed for, and decided to force out of most of its volunteers, cease running public tour trains, and concentrate on locomotive hire to the detriment of a lot of preserved, historic locomotives.

Where are TL154, TL155 & GM36, have they departed from Dimboola
  ed31880 Train Controller

Does anyone know if all/or which locos were powering? The last I seen/heard was that GM 36 was missing a wheel set , TL 154's main gen was sitting on the ground beside it and TL 155 had been sitting on timbers minus it's wheel set for at least 6 months before El Zorro collapsed.

TL 152 and GM 36 were both powering. The SRHC carried out repairs to the GM a couple of months ago.

Does this mean GM36 is fully operational again? If so, does this move likely mean it will be hired out again in the near future?
  ed31880 Train Controller

If GM 36 is made available for hire again, which, if any operators would be likely to want to use it?
