Thanks for the feedback YM-Mundrabilla.

My references do not show the V Class as being built by Clyde Engineering.

One to you Spletsie.
You may well have caught me on a technicality with V 544 being built by EDI who took over Clyde. Smile
No doubt wrongly on my part, but I automatically think of EMD designs as 'built by Clyde' regardless of whatever they were called that day'. That's what happens when you were around to see the first B class load tests on the Glenroy Bank. Rolling Eyes
The VR also had a 'toy' V class built at Newport in about 1959 for car wash (??????) shunting.
Anyway thanks for the quiz - it filled in a while.

Well done, spletsie. You must have put in a lot of hours compiling that quiz, and it is a beauty. I didn't score well (70%) - not enough knowledge of some parts outside of Victoria, but it was very enjoyable.

Spletsie, Saving your quiz for a rainy day. Very much looking forward to having a shot.

67%, many questions on new suburban and light rail which evidently I have little knowledge.

Thanks for the quiz Mr. Spletsie. I surprised myself with 93%. The only reason I can offer is old age!
  Lockspike Chief Commissioner

92%. A few I didn't know; a couple I didn't think about properly.
I found the length of this quiz made it additionally challenging.
Excellent start to the year, Spletsie. Thanks.

Terrific result RC6. Another way of looking at old age is accumulated knowledge and wisdom!
