Note the usual onboard refueling system just behind 4MB9's locos. Discovered yesterday that not all SCT traffic Melbourne /Bromelton near Beaudesert south of Brisbane, have that onboard refueling gear. Barry Trudgett photographed SCT007 SCT010 4MB9 refuelling at 14:40 Paterson 20/8/20 with his image on Facebook (The Northern Roundhouse)

Obviously SCT have a plan for when the onboard tanker is not available

The CFCLA locomotives (CF type) used on this service don't have inline fuelling attachments.
I understand SCT have obtained permission to fuel these locomotives to 10 000 litres giving a mass of around 136 tonnes.
Normally these locomotives would be limited to 80 km/h at this mass but SCT have been given permission to run them at 115km/h. Of course, the mass will reduce progressively to an acceptable 134 tonnes as the fuel is used...

So SCT refuels Leightonfield southbound and reports on Facebook suggest Patterson in the Hunter Valley for northbound.  Thanks as I am keeping track of the main features of SCT's Bromelton / QLD operations.
