a sterling effort from the usual small band of volunteers has resulted in the track being repaired and normal services resuming to Nyora

For how long now have they been operating to/from Nyora?

I would have guessed that they could have had a siding to enable the railmotor to run around the trailer at Nyora.

  639 Chief Commissioner

Maybe the timetable has to be adjusted to accommodate the extra time for the DERM to haul the trailer?

DERM + trailer + 1 in 40 grade = 15mph, maybe 18 if all the planets align.

Check here for answers re M-T-M vs M-M-T.

It required a driver in both railmotors though.

Hasn't been a update for a while.

Y135 is back in action after some needed maintainance, it will be running a DCT next saturday and a DCT the following saturday but a freight.

61 RM and Redhen 402 will both be running next sunday with the Loch Food and Wine Festival on.

For June, July and August we are only running on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the months.

I am working on ZF 24 at the moment and will be getting a coat of paint in the next few days hopefully ready for the DCT freight in two weeks..

40ABU has its canvass completely removed and 32ABU has 50% of new canvass on, if you would like to help on the carriages, theres carriage work on every Thursday and Friday.

We are really in need of some people with Trackwork, no skill is needed we will teach you and its a great time to meet new people and develop friendships, most of us who come to Korumburra to do planned works on rollingstock don't end up doing what is needed because we go out on trackwork to help the hardworking members.

Hi all,

Just wondering if there's any updates for the SGR? The web site and facebook page both appear rather quiet, plus I called in there after chasing the snow train on 22/7, but the afternoon run to Leongatha didn't show up and Korumburra station appeared deserted. :/

Slight chance I may head down there this sunday can anyone tell me what will be running?

There is no T class at SGR it's on hire out on the main line you might be thinking of the Y class tho. The Y class rarely does normal passenger services at SGR. On a normal Sunday you will most likely get either Derm 61RM or Red Hen 402

Sorry thought I saw a T on you tube must have been getting confused with the Y or another tourist railway.

planning to combinwe 2 of my great loves by travelling on the SGR then off to Grand Ridge brewery for a few tastings

Mikey127, you are right, there is a T class, but, it is currently on Hire to Main Line operators such as El Zorro, and is running on the Standard Gauge at the moment in the interesting and striking El Zorro livery. I have heard that the locomotive, T342, is due back to SGR. Can anyone shed any light on this?
  Mikey127 Junior Train Controller

I Saw on the SGR website there was a possibility that it may have not run last Sunday 09/09. Is everthign all good now?
