JUST  TODAY'S  TRAINS - 8

11th June 2012

An outing to Wolseley for the returning Train No2184 and locos GWU007, GM43 and GWU008.
Arriving at Wolseley at about 1015 a.m. and seeing only 13 hoppers on, I expected the loading would be over quickly and the train would be on its way in glorious winter sunshine. It was not to be as the loading dragged on and on and on. Instead of the train getting away in glorious sunshine I had to contend with its departure being at 1645 with the sun down very low and just at this crucial time going in behind some cloud low on the horizon.

1st March 2013

Was expecting a cross, moved the car into position for the old stand on the bonnet trick to gain the necessary slightly elevated position, then saw a train headlight approaching from the rear of 1283 (The Overland)... not what I had expected but worked out alright.. In years gone by would have stood on the roof of the car to get the shots, this could be why most of my cars have had dents in the roofline over the years. Forgot to load the step ladder this morning..  Included a few of the searchlight signals in some shots today, as they must be on borrowed time too. Instead of waiting around Wolseley for the loaded train to make its return journey, took option 1, waited for the locos to run around re join the rear of the train and push the consist back up the hill to the silos then showing FQ04 up front.... That’s it and uneventful day for once, no damage to the car either.

The first shot shows the train with GWA001 leading and the GWA003 & GWA004 bringing up the rear. This was on the Whyalla line.
Train runs into Port Augusta - then train leads out with two up front and GWA001 trailing. I think the train length was 1330 metres.
