One other problem that rears its nasty head is what is the minimum radius that loco will go around.  But if it says 18 inch then that is just the loco and tender itself no train attached, they do not  ...

It is too close to Adelaide though you can drive there quicker than any train would which is why bus companies are running a service to the Barossa Valley it is quicker even if the track was completel ...

[quote=justapassenger][quote]The line is leased to OneRail, who took over GWRR and those before it. They have a requirement to maintain it to be openable within fourteen days. The failure is in ensu ...

[quote=justapassenger][quote]But who is going to pay for the track to be fixed even if it is more bandaid's applied. It is not the State Governments problem now to relay that track as all above ground ...

843 was a special 830 though it had been uprated from approx 950 Hp to 1000 Hp at some point in time so it has a bit extra up its sleeve if needed. But it could replace 801 as the BG shunter though.   ...
