An uncertain future - Seymour Railway Heritage Centre (SRHC)
So here's a new one.
It seems SSR were happy with the paint job SRHC did on their CLF1, and they have bought CLP9 down to Seymour for SRHC to do its repaint as well as some mechanical repairs to get her ready for mainline duties.
This info among plenty more is of course publicly available in the SRHC's excellent blog, which shows the progress of many of their various projects and is easily found with a simple google search (or any other search engine search). It's good to see the blog has again been getting regular updates
I'm not a member of the SRHC or affiliated with the group in any way, but I do like their work. It seems any troubles (from the previous thread) are well behind them, and things seem to be boiling along nicely at Seymour. C501, T382 and P23 have all had a repaint in the past year or so, and all look amazing. I look forward to seeing them out on a heritage charter as soon as the current public health situation allows it.
If the whispers are true we may be seeing C501 out and about very soon in conjunction with some other CL's, just not on heritage toursI don't know about whispers, but yesterday, C501 along with Railpower's recently re-activated CLF2 ran light from Seymour to Laverton, and then on to Dooen to return today with SCT's Wimmera Container service, with C501 to lead the return leg to Melbourne.
