The Rail Resource Centre (ARHS) at Redfern will have photos of these stations.

Yesterday at Mortdale, I saw something I have never seen before push and pull working on one of the Manildra flour trains. It came through at 11am on the up with two 81-class leading, then a long trai ...

The major grade from Bathurst heading east is from Kelso (Macquarie River crossing) to Raglan. Most goods trains were assisted up this grade with a pushup loco which dropped off the train at Raglan. T ...

Of course the whole project was poorly executed but at least we now have a decision and having two 38's again will be something to really look forward to.

It will be interesting to hear Bruce Rankin  ...

Thanks Bevan for sharing that wonderful video, particularly of 6029 working up the grade to Thirlmere, that wonderful exhaust note brought back my treasured memories of nights on Hawkmount in the 1960 ...

I understand PB1 was unloaded yesterday (16.07.14) at Pt Kembla.

It was in the refuelling bay at Chullora on Friday (17/7) afternoon.

On Tuesday the ARHS tour was in Bathurst and while we there we noticed contractors? working on Opal readers. They said that this was installation no.308 and was the last to be installed.

Just resurrecting this old thread.

As a regular train watcher on the Illawarra line, I am very familiar with the coal trains working to Pt Kembla. However, I have noticed in recent months that the nu ...

Thanks to all the crews for the info on the actual operation of these locos. I have noticed on the north west coalies that a common setup is TT+92+TT. Based on the discussion here I get the impression ...

Noted at Oatley this morning at 9:05, TT114, TT105 and TT106? heading north light engine. Returning from Tahmoor coal trials?

I thought it a bit odd for GE to run a full page advertisement in the SMH last week. The ad was in the general use section of the paper not even the business section. Other than rail enthusiasts, I do ...

On Monday, I took advantage of the change to do a Sydney-Muswellbrook and return in a day which is normally not possible with the usual timetable. In particular I wanted to see what work was being don ...

As a former contract manager, I can assure the Govt that they won't save any money in the long term by trying to change the contract with Bombadier. All contractors know that when the client wants to  ...

Over the last week or so, the numbers of export wheat trains from the south seem to have reduced to the stage where today there was none. Only domestic and Manildra seem to be operating. Is there an i ...

Today's (17/4) 9132 was a heritage item with 8101 leading X51 and 8004. The 80 was spluttering and producing lots of smoke through Penshurst.Just to clarify - 9132 is the Dunmore Stone train. I've see ...

Fascinating, notice how close the Qantas South African flights go to Antarctica!

If you were at Como Bank today you would have had a good site of it, doing about 2kmh slipping and struggling on the wet rails. It took about 40' to get from Como to Sutherland!

I heard that the QRN 3958 wheat train from Temora would be climbing Como Bank this afternoon, considering it was drizzling at the time, I thought that Jannali might be an interesting place to watch th ...

Of interest is where are they going to be used. I would assume that as Centenial Coal owns all the mines in the western area (Lidsdale,etc) that would be used on these trains to PK, replacing the 82 c ...

What a pity, I recently flew with them from Sydney to Reunion Island en route to Madagascar. My experience with them was very positive and was proposing to use them next time I go to Europe with a sto ...
