Thankyou. Sulla wonderful as per usual.

I had a chuckle referencing the other thread with the local reporter suggesting removal due to potential accidents. Unfortunately the video doesn’t show the carnage. Laughing

This morning's action on the Mt Isa Line...I believe at least seven trains ran in daylight today on the Townsville to Charters Towers section.

Pacific National's sugar trains from the Burdekin are up and running again for the 2019 season, with all four Wilmar Mills underway. 8328 seen heading down the Townsville Jetty Branch this morning and past Aurizon coal hoppers waiting to go into the Wulguru Group's South Yard Workshops.

After a shaky start at the beginning of the season, PN's 88 class has now more or less taken over the Wilmar sugar trains between the Burdekin and Townsville Jetty - this afternoon 8803 rolled a loaded sugar train down the Townsville Jetty Branch, one of fourteen sugar trains scheduled for the day.

The first three 3700s were delivered in the QR Bronco livery, all subsequent 3700 and 3800s (I think) were delivered in the black and yellow QR National livery. Jilalan began repainting the 3700s in the full Aurizon grey/orange/yellow livery in 2017, but in 2018 switched to the simplified yellow scheme now sported by several 3700s and 3800s.

If you're on Facebook, the Queensland Mainline Trains group has a number of photos of 3726 in the original Aurizon livery (I believe the orange and grey striping was done with decals). Link here if it works...
