I was fortunate enough to be in Nuriootpa for a cross of the Stonie with Light Engine 841 travelling out to Penrice to drag and re-rail the three hoppers from off the dead end bank.
( See the 3 off the track hoppers
HERE )  Followed the Stonie from Nuriootpa to as far as Sandy Creek, then turned back to check out a winery in Lyndoch.

25th June 2010

At about 12:20 p.m. found out that the loaded stone train was late getting away from
Penrice leaving there around 12 midday, and was expected through Lyndoch in
about 40 minutes (12:40 p.m.)..... Surprised to see 3 x 830's on this particular train this time as the train came into view at precisely 12:40 p.m. 
The previous days train had had the usual 704 and 843 combination in charge.

The Orion plane shot was being in the right place at the right time, having the camera sitting on the rear seat of the car and seeing the plane circling to do a 'touch und go' landing at the airfield helped, especially when I saw the plane come into view in the cars rear view mirrors with the landing lights on and flaps down.

The Stonie taken at Kalimna Road, Penrice, We happened to be at the Kalimna Road crossing (where the stone train enters and leaves the mine site) at that same moment as the departing loaded stone train came into view slowly leaving the loading area this train had the more usual 704 and 843 combination.. The train literally crawled over the crossing at 2kph travelling downhill at no more than about 10 kph...

THREE  830's  on  STONIE



21st March 2010

Another Sunday spent doing a bit of training, photographing the returning stone train from Penrice (Angaston) at a couple of locations. The stone train with locos 844, 843 and 841 was photographed going through the Nuriootpa's overgrown yard and on its approach to Lyndoch.

DERAILMENT  AT  PENRICE

23rd November 2010
(Wayne Morris)

Derailment Penrice Quarry on 20 November 2010
The incident was a NON shunting occurrence due to a failure of a coupling on one of the
barney cars which hold the wagon rake via a cable as they are being loaded on the incline.

ANGASTON  PENRICE  (STONIE)  3 x 830's




19th April 2009

Today I met the incoming Stonie train at a nice spot on the Cavan road bridge on Port Wakefield Road overlooking the Dry Creek North yard. I was very happy with the results, as well as the ones of the same train passing through the new Bishops Loop, the crossing itself is SG only. Was a pity the 830's didn't SMOKE IT UP though, very clean exhaust considering.  Bishops Loop is in a good position to capture afternoon trains, provided you park your car on the northern side of the crossing, allows time to photograph the train, get in the car and back onto the Port Expressway for a quick run into Port Adelaide (look for the 2 x dock cranes) that is where you go to see the train climbing up onto the bridge. Still made a nice change from seeing the usual 704 leading the loaded Stonie train. A quick training day was enjoyed, even if it was just for the one train.

Now rightly a Magpie returns in its place on the front of 831.

STONIE  OVER  PORT  RIVER  BRIDGE

August 2008
(Wayne Morris)

After Stonie having stopped at Dry Creek South for crew change the same train with 841 added to the front
which  is seen here climbing up onto the Port Rail bridge taken from the adjacent road bridge.

Having reached its destination, the locos enter
the area and shunt the loaded hoppers.


Imagine my surprise when three engines come into view, this time without 841. There were now 843 - 704 
and 517 to take the empties back to Dry Creek South. 517 having been the regular shunting loco and being replaced with 841 for some reason. I think 517 must have failed at some stage earlier. 
The ICI PENRICE shunt engine is generally well weathered in white powder / deposits...not 517 though.

OTHER  STONIE  PICTURES



June 2008

At near Birkenhead on the western side of the Port River where the new bridge comes down and joins up at present with the almost original alignment (has been altered in recent months) of the old route to Birkenhead from Glanville - I saw a fella with camera in hand - turns out he was waiting for the loaded stone train from Penrice, he found out (heard on scanner he was carrying) that the train was coming over the bridge instead of going the long way around. I made a few phone calls to GWA and then to ARTC - the train may get away from Dry Creek at about 3:00p.m.??? Waited and waited, then went back to the eastern side of the Port River (Port Adelaide) side waited there, nothing came, A security person came to me at about 3:15 told me that the train was still at Dry Creek yard and had not moved yet... So took off for awhile till around 4:40 p.m. Went for a return wander to Birkenhead near the bridge, signals still showing red. Drove north towards ICI place at Osborne, caught sight of the empty stonie with 902 (ex 830 class) leading with the GWA - orange 704 in second place.

At about 5:20 p.m. it moved off, managed a few photos in the next to little or no remaining light.  
Then the same train stopped at the double red signal before the bridge. I parked the car, ran to the loco position, took a couple of pics of the loco / red signal with the headlight shining (this is about 250 m prior to the ramp / bridge.).  Asked driver, "OVER, or around the bridge". "Over the bridge", he replied. 
Rushed off with the car, stopped adjacent to fenced section of track and the UP /DOWN ramp to the bridge.

"Over the bridge", the driver replied.

 I was pleased to have managed what I did in the poor light conditions.

There were plenty of security people in and around the bridge that afternoon keeping the photographers and gawkers out. I could not get into where I really wanted to GET to show the train on the bridge.  I guess once the trains are regular, then the security people will GO AWAY. I would guess it is not to keep people out, more so keep them away from the bridge "LEST THE TRAIN SHOULD FALL OFF"
