As far as I can tell, they have now got enough B series railcars to do the whole Mandurah/ Butler line with all services being run as 6 car sets during the peaks (except during special events), and th ...

As was widely reported on some Facebook groups, and for the benefit of those not on Facebook, yesterday video was uploaded that showed 48130 shunting back into the fuel siding at Tamworth, and retriev ...

I'll be very curious to see how the NIMBY's that want the freight line to have curfews (or best case scenario for them, complete removal) placed on their operations will react.

85% for me, although, considering I travelled over the Mandurah line, and the section of Railway between Perth and Claisebrook about 20 mins before taking the quiz (and I've been a PTA employee for th ...

80% for me, so not too bad.

The questions on which railway opened first, which section of the City Circle was finished last, how many tunnels on Cowan bank, and how many stations on the Blue mount ...

I watched the last season of MAFS. with some of the things that are on TV, it was slightly interesting to see who would end up with who, and the various triumphs and challenges the different couples f ...

Managed 60%. so not too bad. The was one question where the answer was "F Class" twice, I don't know if that was intentional or not.

Other than that, great quiz.

Re: Painting the Brass Buffers

I have not had a lot of experience painting brass. On my CW wagon project I just painted the whole lot (brass and all) with the German Grey, and, it didn't take long  ...

I've used Tamiya "German Grey" (XF63) to paint my IDR "CW" wagons, (The elephant carrying variety) and that seems to look relatively convincing.

Does anyone know what type of wagons were being hauled and where they came from? I've been told they were ex BHP wagons, but I've got no information on the coding for those wagons or their history.

Loved the video, thanks for sharing.
