PH001 and PH002 sighted at Nebo Facility

An article about the Murgon Mens shed, where the rail trail will terminate until the rest is built.

Please note the funding promised was $20 000, and it hasn't been delivered.

Please be advised that the Coordinator General has approved release of the draft terms of reference (TOR) for the environmental impact statement (EIS) for public comment on the proposed South Burnett  ...

The rail trail from Kingaroy to Mugon will open about early March.  With only one major bridge (Barambah Creek between Murgon and Wondai) it's the easy section to make into a railtrail.  About $50 mil ...

Info boards are from the early 90's, way out of date.  A silly place for a lookout - not often a loco moves around there, and with on-track wheel replacements happening, not a lot of wagon shunting ta ...

Telstra solar panels have the Telstra symbol moulded in them, which makes it easy to identify them.  When I worked at Telstra I had Google Earth with the Telstra cable overlay for planning where to pu ...

The 3xxx's and a heap of ex Newland 80T wagons are stored on a unballasted "temporary" siding between the old yard and the Wagon Maintenance Facility.  They really can't be seen where they are from th ...

PN crews for the start, then they will get their own crews. Hay Point sign on and FIFO Moranbah sign on.  Offer better conditions than Aurizon or PN and they will have plenty of drivers willing to go ...

I was told that the South Africans were amazed at the kitchen on the 38's when they had a look! 

Drivers from other depots have stated that the conditions aren't so good a Jilalan.  I signed on for the roster with long weekends (5 and 4 day weekend alternating) every (8 week) cycle, and that ro ...

I don't know if it will be "en mass", but I am pretty sure that the advertising will be local.  The mass 2007 intake (which I was part of) has pretty well failed, most of my class have left Jilalan.   ...

20 Trainee's in Jilalan next year.

3200 class are all gone, all converted to 37's.  The 31's are all sitting in the dead end at Jilalan, no 31 consists being used on the Goonyella system anymore.  ELRC's are sitting in the sticky coal  ...

The last train on the Goonyella system was EW56 which ran from Jilalan to 4 road Coppabella to be stowed, in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

There are two guard vans at Coppabella, they were listed for sale on the Australian Train Movers website, but they are no longer listed.  There is another one at Jilalan.  I was taking a photo of the  ...

È possibile ottenere italiano rivetti? Questo è fantastico!

It's from the post-modern neo fastner era.

Can you get metric pop rivets?

3926 and 3918 at Jilalan for 3550 class training.

DH72, DH73, MMY37, MMY45 are currently at Jilalan.

A lot of the 50km/h and all of the 80km/h points in the Goonyella system have moveable vee's.  I agree that the difference between the 50km/h and 80km/h is the length.  Probably a higher axle loading  ...

Probably has a moving vee in the frog as well as the point blade.  Less wear as there is no gap in the track to go across.

3815 has been fitted with Australian Standard compliant insulation, and has passed the noise test.

There is a triangle being constructed at Jilalan to turn the bar-coupled wagons.  Part of the station upgrade.

MMY030 was on the Jilalan wheel lathe yesterday, with MMY004 at the locoshed.
