Some unusual observations this morning;
2002+2021 & T. # 633 [29W (inc. 18 log & (see notes below
via Bridgewater, 0703h. (running very late)
stop Granton, 0710 - 0716h. (Track Warrant)
via Claremont, 0729h.
via Berriedale, 0735h.
Note (1): Observed in the consist of 633 were some veryunusual wagons - for a South Line train - new Railton cement wagon, THFY001-G and new Melba Line ore wagons, TOMY0039-S & TOMY0040-Y. I expect they are still under test, but it is quite bizarre to see West Coast ore wagons and a Railton - Devonport cement hopper going into Hobart! Would this be the first visit ever of a Melba Line ore wagon and Railton cement wagon to Hobart?
Meanwhile, following behind was;
2054+2051+2101* & T. # 635 [17W](* = d/a)
dept. Tea Tree Loop, 0805h. (after a crew change)
via Brighton, 0814h.
via Bridgewater, 0829h.
via Granton, 0833h.
Note (2): Unfortunately, one side of 2101 has copped a fullside covering of graffiti, plus some damage to the pilot.
Note (3): Uncommon to see 33 and 35 one after the other at this time of the morning.
