I think it will be a much more common sight to see ARG locos pulling Westnet work train like rail and ballast.
On friday, I saw the ARG train in lieghton, it didnt leave untill 3.30pm which was a bit late then usally, anyone know why it was running late?
It was late because 2206 failed in the section to Soundcem and needed to be pushed to Soundcem
SSRS will have its three ZB's tied up on the Mandurah line for a year so that only leaves their R and F available for n/g work. Will be interesting to see what ARG have free for infrastucture work when grain cartage is in full swing.
