Awesome sound and always liked the orange and black, especially in the great lighting conditions Bevan has caught them in!ARG in NSW had an allotment of Ls, 22's and CLPs, but were often short on motive power. A certain loco deployment officer in charge often used to put together what we called "classic combos" using any leased locos he could get his hands on. There were at least three trains a day running somewhere in NSW in daylight.
Did ARG have standard loco combinations for their trains? (Failures/repairs aside)
How many trains ran over a standard week at the time?
whats the story on ARG, did they get swallowed up?The ex Western Australian half got sold to QR National, the SA half returned/stayed as G&W.
They stole all the 422, whats the story on ARG, did they get swallowed up?ARG didn't steal anything, during May 2000 they purchased 17 of the 20 strong, 422 class locos from the FreightCorp (NSWGR) who had decommissioned and stored them during 1996 & 1997.
