The 2 unsold ex Qube contract GT26CW-3 clones, 1109 and 1110 have been moved from Mount Vernon to Silvis for rebuild.

To be fitted with ng bogies and GE 764 traction motors for use on the 3' gauge  ...

The Ro-Ro "Tarago" discharged 2 GT22CU-3 clones from NRE at Fisherman Islands on Wednesday.

Locos left Savannah, Georgia, on the "Titania" and were transhipped through Auckland.

[quote="Big J"]Back to the original thread. There may not be a very huge appetite for these and they may have to virtually commercially give them away, if an operator here would take on the risk.

Not Australia, but South Africa

Locos are over height for South Africa. On Cape gauge, unsuitable for freight, if HEP stripped out, to ...

I know painting a loco is hard work but the effort to put sticker material all over it seems a step backwards.

Thunder Bird departed Brisbane at 03:21 bound for Korea

If locos were discharged, was on Wednesday

If Adelaide is any example, look for them where Quarantine (or their contractors) wash/disinfec ...

I like that they kept the classification number in the glass classification. Makes it easy to work out the origins. Did they ever update the numbers in the glass classification?

[quote=bevans]Thanks for starting the thread. Why would the locos be coming off in Adelaide when they are NG or are they to be regauged? I guess we (me) need some help understanding what is the plan ...

The Thunder Bird birthed at Fisherman Islands late Tuesday.

Should be discharging today.

Discharged 5 x 2250 in Adelaide last Thursday, ex Durban, 2260/2261/2262/2269/2275.

No photos from Dur ...

From the tone of Jack Hellmann's letter to employees, it is a "world class investor", so can any ideas re glorified mamma and poppa shows like the Smith Family's SCT purchasing the 51% of the Australi ...

Note the similar fishbelly frame to the Qube E-3000E3B, and NRE/Grindrod RL30SCC-3 (frames 0025-0093)

I have had some second thoughts re the Thunder Bird

She was very slow discharging at Port Adelaide, as she had to remove tween decks, and stack these on the wharf

You can see the tweens in front ...

Refer Motive Power #107 Sept/Oct 2016 for a list of numbers.

Transnet had imported 20 2250 as rebuild core for subsidiary Transnet Engineering in October 2014 (plus 14 2170 for use by Transnet Frei ...

The 2250 contain around 14 tonnes of easily removable ballast. Redbank apparently cut plate and scrap rail to fit, rather than backing up a readymix concrete truck.

The 3 that TE are rebuilding for ...

I guess the 2100's could also be remanufactured into 2700's at Redbank.

Site apparently does not like Word, washed it through Notepad, does it look better?

There have been posts in the past deriding the 710, and questioning its ongoing viability
