I was wondering whether anyone may be able to give me an insight into where either or both MMY019 (railgrinder) and MMY028 (stoneblower) may be operating for the next 7-10 days?
I am driving to Mackay from Sydney for a week to take photos for a model project I am working on and would like to get some of these 2 machines if I can track them down in my travels.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It'd pay to find an excuse to stop at Dutton Park station (near Wooloongabba, on the south side of the city), as a number of track machines are stationed at a small depot in arms' reach of the station. Can't say for sure about the stone blower, but I'm sure I've seen the grinder there. They've got a CAT 09-16 there too... now who do I know that had a half-finished brass etch for one of those...
There was definitely a railgrinder working between Cloncurry and Julia creek when I was last working - last weekend - and oddly enough, they were talking about a stoneblower stowed at Pentland, between Hughenden and Charters Towers.
