[quote=james.au]What role will these play in the SSR fleet now? Are they going to replace some of the lower hp and older locos (perhaps retiring some of these) or are there new business options emerg ...

If the loco performs well on the flat, up hill slow speed ect but only has a surge going down a grade I would say there is nothing wrong at all with the motor. If there was an issue with the motor it  ...

Interesting. SCT currently lease 5 of the LDPs and PN lease the other 4 LDPs.

There are only 9 LDPs the other 5 built sat around unused for over 2 years before they were sold several years ago. LDP ...

No one has bought them yet. Bids for Auction had to be in by 4pm today so by next week we will learn who won the Auction for each loco.

From replies on Facebook post about 44s they said as delivered versions will be done in a Future run. As will MK2 and MK3 versions.

As stated by others in earlier posts. This is old news and the Widgelli Rail Hub is a dead duck and will not be going ahead.

Wumbulgul about 20kms to the east Griffith on the line to Junee will soo ...

I think most retailers would prefer a 2 day show.

All the serious money and sales occur on a Saturday.

Sales tend to be slow on Sunday and Monday. That’s what I was toLe by several retailers at a ...

Good if it happens. It’s only taken 20 add years to get going.

Remember seeing massive amounts of sandstone from the north shore sewerage storage tunnel project being barged to Rozelle and then r ...

What a joke, Purely political to locate maintenance facilities at Dubbo.

Will require many empty car movements for maintenance and positioning sets.

Great for train crews as they will be flat out.

There would be no dynamic brake as the brake pipe was at zero due to automatic handle in emergency position.

You need brake pipe pressure for dynamic to work.

Some serious questions to be asked in  ...

Wouldnt there be lower grade grand finals played earlier in the day. Certainly has been in the past. People will be arriving from lunch time onwards.

Parking is booked out months in advance for grand ...

Currently mainline locos are restricted to 35km/hr west of Temora (except for 48/49 class locos with lighter axel loads)

They must be going to replace the rail allowing speed increase to 60km/hr for ...

The 3 very small inverter panels on the side are not main traction inverters they are for inverters contolling traction motor blowers and fan control removing the need for mechanically driven front bo ...

Millipede remover is simply a jet of air blasted onto rail head in front of leading axel on loco to blow millipedes of the rail head as crushed millipedes cause traction issues. Crews can manually ope ...

There are many reasons why a locomotive can fail. New or older locomotive.

In this case no doubt ARTC instructed PN train to assist failed SCT train to clear the section. Normally the operator PN in ...

Considering the thread subject is about 46/86 class I was referring to DC traction motors that both electric and diesel locomotives use and some of the reasoning behind limiting their speeds As for he ...

Yep definitely a NIMBY case.

We live in a selfish world no one cares about the greater benefit of all.

Hope the ARTC and Government grow a pair and stick to their plan that uses the fastest/most ...

The assertion that ARTC restrict locomotives to 80km/hr is not correct.

The TOC manuals of ARTC/Syd Trains/CRN determine speeds of locomotives and rolling stock on their respective networks. Axel loa ...

Was going to suggest the same. They fitted an illuminated E to the roof of 8501 and 8504 got an illuminated E below cab windows as a trial to combat this problem. None of the other 85s were modified.

Boral Berrima is the bulk cement plant that uses rail for both inbound raw materials and bulk cement out.

The plant at Maldon is mainly bagged product now.

Maldon is also used to unload aggregate an ...

The loading point was a siding at Yenda for McWilliams Wines which is near Griffith on the line to Temora.

The transport by rail ended maybe 15 years ago but not sure exactly when.

Like most things  ...

Sorry Rod but I understand completely what you are saying it’s just that I don’t believe anything you say.

If you said it was raining I would go outside to check.

Your argument doesn’t stand  ...

Big difference with the G class to OTM 80 Auscision have never said tooling has started on G class, they have never said order forms about to come out. It is simply a project in development as far as  ...

Are you kidding Rod ? Prices are cheaper than in the past especially for the quality of models on offer.

Their reruns are cheaper too, for example 73 is $255 and 422 $275 hardly what I would call gou ...

Yes, SCT have returned the LDPs as a cost saving measure. However they will keep one or two with the rest going to PN on a short term lease.
