Ooops lad an Egg....Thanks for spotting typos...
I don't usually feed the trolls around here but you're an annoying twerp so I'm going to make an exception this time.
Could you please point out exactly where the typo is in this sentence?IF
that rule exists in NSW....correctly, the NR (AC traction) ought to be buried in the consist and not in the lead
Is it the multiple rolling eye gifs, getting the NRs traction wrong or the bold, underlined, capitalised 'if' that was a slip of the fingers?
Should have just admitted you were wrong and moved on.
Incorrect to make such a sweeping statement....indicating that the EA is the instrument determining operational requirements; because, PN does have EMD locos leading....e.g.: exMildura - XR Class, 81 Class, G Class; exWarrnambool on WestVic train - G Class (in the past A Class) ...!
I am not incorrect. Like most industrial agreements the PN Intermodal EA has minimum requirements for workplace conditions. Currently, as far as I am aware, the only locos approved to lead intermodal services are NR, AN and 93 class locos.
The services you mention are operated by PN Bulk and so are not covered by the PN Intermodal agreement.
The NR's flexibility e.g. 3 power levels and resulting adhesion levels, enables it to vary its performance levels...virtually 3 locos in one...!
Yeah, that's the reason NRs are on most of the services - the variable horsepower.
