Really interesting and some nice historical power on the trains.
What surprised me was how run down everything looked. I also had not realised that some VR T class found their way into AN. Did they return to VR, Vline whatever?
A real credit to all involved in the production of this film which is a great record of operations on the South Line towards the end of 'government' operation and prior to National Rail really taking over.
A few points perhaps worthy of comment:
- The preponderance of 830 class locos to the detriment of the 930s.
- The preponderance of Victorian rolling stock - Victoria must have made a $ squillion out of Interchange Charges.
- The apparent shortage of ballast in many locations (both shoulder and 4-foot).
- SG and the NRs were coming as was closure of the Mount Gambier line.
- AN starved the South Line of big power apart from a handful of BLs.
- Thank goodness for the C class
Once again, congratulations to all involved in producing this top quality film.
(Some triple 900 class would have been nice but that was another era!)
