Nice quiz again @Spletsie! Somehow I managed 75%, a few lucky guesses in there.

Fabulous quiz with me only getting 45%.

AL class I had never heard of it until now.

Info on the AL Class only 8 ever built. https://www.railpage.com.au/locos/al-class

Am i right to assume the class was introduced with the gradual SG conversion of the line to Alice Springs?

Location: Yarra Glen
Didn't know about any gradual SG conversion.  Wasn't it an entirely new SG line, on a new alignment?

I got 50% in the quiz, not bad considering I know zilch about NT railways.
  Lockspike Deputy Commissioner

65% Sad Thought I knew the NT railways better than that.

Thanks Spletsie; another cracking quiz!

Location: Mundrabilla but I'd rather be in Narvik
Got all the historic ones but only 75% in the end due to one careless/dyslexic click where I thought in miles and the quiz was in km (Darwin - Birdum).
Missed couple of the modern ones like the AL on the first train, the Iron Man and the first Ghan into Darwin plus one other careless button push.
Thanks Spletsie well done.

Not directly, primarily built for the TAR, although perhaps indirectly.
Actual construction of Tarcoola - Alice Springs was undertaken using GMs. But CR used pretty much everything everywhere to best advantage.

70% at my end. Some of the answers were just very faintly lingering in my head.
  Rossco T Chief Train Controller

Location: Camberwell, Victoria
Only 65% for me, not too many guesses paid off this time for me!

Another great quiz!

Great fun again, spletsie. I managed 65% which I guess is better than I expected.
