As most of us know, SSR have bought the coal wagons previously used on the Leigh Creek coal train. They've sent locos S317-GM27-GM10-S302 over to pick up the first 90 wagons. Due to leave Spencer Junction at 8:45am this Friday (28/10/2016)

Thanks for the heads up.  Are the locos at Port Augusta as yet and to where will the wagons be heading?

CRL is a subsidiary of SSR, why did they structure the group that way?

I'm happy to be corrected, but I think it's either a separate company with shared directors or the other way around.

Can anyone confirm if it is running via the Blue Mountains and if so approx time? Working on Katoomba Station from 1225 Sunday so it would be great to get a look. Cheers Rod.
