SCT workings WA and all over Australia

Heard PM9 shunting in Forrestfield tonight (Sun 01:00). Is this a new service or a late working due to the MP9 accident in SA earlier this week?

Since this is titled SCT workings I will post this here.

SHOCK.....HORROR ExclamationExclamation

This afternoon I came throught Forrestfield and actually saw H5 shunting the SCT train. Now I know we have seen this unit on the SoW and the Freo trip train, but other than that I have only ever seen it sitting on one of the roads just north of Gemco, with the K doing all the work. Tonight it was the other way around with the K sandwiched between 2 new GreaterFreighter wagons, while little old H5 got to have a play.

Speaking of the K class (sorry, I cant remember which of the 3 is her in Perth), are there any plans to get it repainted into SCT livery???

A SCT service left Forrestfield on Sunday at 1700 behind G526 & 542.

Any one know if this was just a really late 7PM9 or another new Daylight service??

Sounded like the inbound 6MP9 SCT train caused some excitement at Midland this afternoon with points problems leading to the crossing being blocked for some time. Anyone with some pics?

Two SCT trains in daylight... 7MP9 SCT into Forrestfield this morning, then 6PM9 outbound SCT V544/G539/G538? departed about 9ish.

You were right with the loco numbers Nachoman. The SCT train stopped at Meckering to cross the Prossy around 11.30. Three of the new "Greater Freighter" wagons were in the consist.

Will post some photos later on.  Very Happy

See Ya,

H5 has been the only available loco for three weeks or so now, K208 has done a main generator.

Isnt K208 owned by SCT and by the way I heard it had been having a lot of work on it over the last few years. By the way has it been painted into SCT colours yet.....

I heard the SCT was held for a few hours east of Northam somewhere because of overcrowding at Forrestfield today

Westbound SCT train was through Meckering before 6.00 AM. I saw all the trains after that, but didn't see that one.  Very Happy

I saw MP9 leave Melb on Fri30-12-05 with G538-G539-G523.i find it interesting that G538-G539 only left Perth yesterday.Wheres G523 ended up. Did this service stop over somewhere due to New Years or has there been loco problems which required a loco swap some where across the Nullabour.

SCT in Perth on a Sunday again today. 5MP9 in last night, 1PM9 departed shortly after 16:00.

This may be a stupid question, but you see a lot of SCT trucks on the road.  Would it be viable for them to run TOFC and/or Roadrailer trains at all?

Will be suprised if G543 is still leading on arrival into Melb certain crews dont like this g leading a/c different cab layout among other things

SCT specialises warehousing and I think you will find that most of the SCT trucks on the road are just deliveries between the warehouse and customer.
