A.N.R.   A.N.  BROAD  GAUGE




Sundays in the 80's was always interesting to get out and see what was rostered for the regular Sunday working to Mount Gambier, which usually including a mix or a 'lash-up' of locos for balancing. A visit to Wingfield on Sunday in 1988 revealed eight units on the South East including 939, 844 and 931. The locos and consist were ready to roll and this a one of those "must follow" jobs.

Standard gauge trackage now replaces the cabin, but the memories of that day live on.
