I would imagine, that we could see some interesting locomotive set-ups in the future if this does prove true.
Has anyone else heard on how they plan to run this train? 1 rumour that seems to be gaining traction is distributed power, and 14,000t trains (reducing frequency down to 2 trains a week).
For those who are not aware, the current working of this train is carried out by PN from Bemax siding (On the outskirts of Broken Hill) for Cristal Mining, which is then run down to Port Flat in Adelaide. Currently, 6 trains a week run usually in the order of the long consist 1 day, and the short consist the following day.
