What has Manildra replaced the 73's with?

Puts me in mind of the bloke who was caught producing counterfeit 50 cent pieces. He had dated them "2018", and police charged him with forging ahead.(groan).

I'm guessing these have been in storage for a while?

It looks to be fairly recent.  There is also evidence of some graffiti removal at two locations on the RHS, where the gloss finish has been rubbed back.

4501's paint is looking a bit tired.  How long is it since it's last repaint?  It looks as though the paints used give about 5 years of reasonable wear before the gloss/colour fades.

Happy IRing,

Ainsworth have future plans for up to 4 x 73 class, the three in Goulburn are candidates for a rebuild (7319 is a shell).

7319, 7322 and 7333 are in residence at the Goulburn Rail Heritage Centre until the future work is arranged.

Manildra generally use 7315 and the PN locomotives for shunting at Bomaderry.

It is understood that the move was actually overnight 07-08/12/16.  The consist arrived at GRHC early on Thursday 08/12/16.  The three 73's were placed out the back of the Roundhouse (the "Outback").  4464 and 4501 were coupled up and stabled on the arrival road and departed early on Saturday 10/12/16.

Happy ALCoing,

John

PS;  Just for accuracy it should be Ainsworth Engineering.  They are also doing the work on boiler tab 3819.
