[quote=neillfarmer]On reflection I think the CC were not a popular addition to locos, probably for safety reasons that you mention. NSWGR did have those two metal bars that came down close to the trac ...

[quote=neillfarmer]I travelled on that tour, and I do think the cowcatcher was especially requested. I think on each of my few visits to Mudgee loco there was maybe one engine fitted with a CC. 3081 m ...

[quote=KRviator][quote][quote]I don't think there's an issue if the roster for a train has shytehouse loco allocation, but it sounds like someone put the 600 on point where there was a better-equipped ...

I believe part of the problem is the tyres being made from Stainless Steel, rather than the old Nickel Silver, SS does not seem to like glues which does not help.which is the reason ...

[quote=Oscar]Yeah I read that before a6et regarding wheel material. I went on a search for all threads on the TOR C32 because I recently bought this one off ebay. It sat in a cupboard for a little wh ...

My support for a station there is simply due to the large gap between CC and Cardiff station ...

[quote=RTT_Rules][quote]I would also say that the shopping centres are to blame as well. Why was glendale built where it was instead of nearer to cardiff. Same goes for westfields kotara. In Sydney th ...

[quote=bevans]I guess that is the real problem now in Australia. But what was the trigger for the need to act about it in any case?
