                                                                                              they are to be scrapped.

The wooden wagons are RCH's and the steel ones are VGA's.
The RCH's should be up for tender in Saturdays West.
Some of the VGA's may be kept by ARG for storage.
They are being taken off their bogies so the bogies can be used to convert the AHGX SG wheat wagons (ex Manildra Contract) to NG and then they will be reclassified as AHGF wagons.
These wagons, once finished will be used in Merredin.

There are another 26 RCH's coming from Avon to Forrestfield Friday 18/11/05

Watch for S2111 to be working trains with one cab missing.  On of the cabs has had to be removed for repairs and the loco will be put back in traffic with only one cab.

Location: All over the place at the moment !
It had a mishap at one of the coal mines down Collie way, Driver was given the light to come under the chutes but the chute was still down a bit too low and crunched the top of the cab.
  Mike_in_the_west Chief Commissioner

Location: Perth, WA
Ouch!!  Is it setup to run long hood forward when the cab is taken off?  Or do you recon they will just stick a second unit coupled to the end without a cab?
  903 Chief Commissioner

Location: Perth WA
The cab will take about three weeks to fix so it will just go one way until the cab is fixed

Send these things back to NSW and bring back our 3100's!!!! LaughingVery Happy
  903 Chief Commissioner

Location: Perth WA
they were rebuilt by EDi rail so the fact that they actually made it to WA is a complete bonus.  Once we iron out the bug they will be fine,, and I believe the 3100 are coming here aswell with 3103 already here.
