Today's training pictures taken during a run out to Callington following the Loxton grain Train No: 1341 with locos 2207, 2210, 2212 and CLF5. Rather late in the day and knew that the sun would always be a challenge.. Shots included taken at Mt Lofty and Balhannah. This train got away from Dry Creek at about 1645 hours today.

13th December 2010

Coming into Jamestown and knowing that there would be a grain train at Gladstone and another one at Port Pirie. Then I came across this load sitting in a servo at Jamestown (Johnno's Territory)... spoke with the driver and the pilot vehicles... loco shell off to Maryborough QLD, then expected to be taken by truck to somewhere in WA for rail ops over there. These people told me that they were expected to be back at Port Augusta workshops ready for another pick up / delivery this Saturday 18th Dec.

Only two trains today. The Balco (Pelican Point-Outer Harbor) to Bowmans.... then the returning loaded Stonie from Penrice near NURLUTTA between Elizabeth South TA Station and Salisbury TA Station. Came out well due to overcast conditions between drizzle and three 830's up front in lieu of the more popular 704 - 830 class combo......

23rd January 2011

I ventured out as a last minute decision to get the returning Wolseley grainy. 
The grainy was delayed at TB for awhile, then set off a little later than hoped for, by then the cloud cover had closed in...My first pics were taken near Mobilong Prison...I managed to get ahead of the train easily and made it to Monarto South expecting to grab a quick shot of it trundling through, I was lucky by going into   Monarto South, watched it pull into the loop (siding)... then stop.

The siding loop switches have been removed and this is the end of the turn-out from the Adelaide end of Bordertown into the silo or old loop/sidings. I did ask the question why the earthworks, digging and levelling up to very near the crossing and was advised that is where the run around is going to be for the locos from the silo road. 
Looks it will be very CLOSE to the crossing when completed...?

A few pics from my Second Edition of recent travels away from Adelaide. As I have been based at Kingston SE for this stage of my away time from Adelaide this train was a must have in fotting terms as I had missed the previous weeks departing Wolseley grain train by about an hour.
