Using Distributed Power would probably also improve train handling.

If they could get hold of those PN, XRBs and modify them for distributed power use? It could be a good solution ...

It's a long time ago but as I recall, SCT cited their ability to run on Bio-Diesel as one of the reasons behind their purchase of the CSR Class. I wonder if that ever took place and how successful tha ...

Nothing that has been said above changes the fact that these trains have been running for years albeit with more failures than predicted. Even while the studies and discussions referred to above occur ...

Given the situation with Covid 19, ie trying to avoid crowded trains, withdrawing them urgently simply doesn't add up?

These trains have been running with the same turbo's for years. An extra couple ...

Given that GWA has just sold a number of 3000 hp EMD locomotives to SSR, it would be reasonable to suggest that there may not be great for that level of horsepower.

I think you would keep the 710, mo ...

The last post reminded me of the 6 "new" EMD 16 710 powered South African passenger locomotives for sale by auction by WH Auctions. These were the subject of a thread "Locomotive Auction" six months o ...

Thank you "arctic" for clarifying my post. Yes I am referring to the Indian Rail WDG - 5 which is an EMD 710 - 20 powered locomotive introduced in 2015 producing 5,500 hp. I don't believe there have b ...

When Inland Rail is completed, which theoretically will be in 2025, the only Capital city without double stacking capability will be Sydney. In those circumstances I can foresee that loco's like the I ...

I don't know if any of these locos have been used in SSR service yet but CLP 12 was receiving attention and was fired up and running yesterday morning at Cootamundra.

I am a puzzled to the reference in Qube's statement about extending their light rail presence? Could this be a reference to narrow guage? If so are looking at a new narrow guage cf44.

The first three 2250s delivered to Whyallla, ie 2275, 2250 and 2260 were newly painted in standard GWA livery. Logic suggests that the fourth 2250 was well down the refurbishment track before One Rail ...

[quote=james.au][quote]Thanks for the heads up, I will keep an eye out for them.

I am fascinated, that they have decided to do this.[/quote]I suspect that they need to make a return on them somehow ...

Looking resplendent in its shiny new GWA livery, ex QR, ex South Africa, now GWA 2275 was sighted at Whyalla provisioning centre today at 1530. Coupled to GM/Morrison Knudson 1301 the refurbished loco ...

Yes, thank you BH, you are correct, the railed Hematite ore is mainly exported and the local production is based on Magnetite ore which is carried by slurry pipeline. However by my reckoning they will ...

Thank you DD for the reference to GWNs to QLD. I wasn't aware as I had missed that thread. Until now I had assumed that the 2250s were to be used to increase the flow of ore to meet Mr Gupta's most im ...

Thank you for the new information.

I have seen nothing to indicate they are in service yet but I will keep a watch out when traveling through.

Hi all. Reports in other fora indicate that a number of former QR 2100 class [ex South Africa] may be deployed in iron ore traffic  at Whyalla. Apparently they were offloaded at Adelaide on the way to ...

Thank you Lockspike for confirming exactly what I said in my second post.

It's also good to see that subsequent posters can contribute positively to the issues raised.

Thank you Lockspike for the answers to the questions I actually asked. As to your answers to the questions you imagined I asked, perhaps they say more about your fragile ego than anything else.

Why c ...

Is "super elevation" used to any great extent on the Melbourne - Sydney - Brisbane line? If not, does anyone know why not? And could it be be used with much higher powered trains to significantly lowe ...

There has not been one detailed proposal tabled by either state or local government!

There has been a loose suggestion to convert the last 4km of the track into Port Lincoln into a truck lane ...

Most of my message went astray so I will try again.

Liverpool Street is the main retail street. B doubles and triples carrying grain use this all year. It is already a significant safety issue but th ...
