LDP001 makes an appearance!

LDP001 made an appearance on TM81 Tahmoor coalie today with 8205 and 8207 on the rear.  

Nice and clear for a shot at Aylmerton.

Toll Weetbix Tryathlon

Snapped this rare beast on a Perth to Sydney service last week.  It is an old container, probably at least 20 years old based on the design.  

Carrying the number TSPD 410109-5, it is marked in the new Toll livery and advertising sponsorship for the Weetbix Tryathlon.

G:Link Trams Page

After a trip to the Gold Coast, I have set up a G;Link Gold Coast 2020 Trams page.  You can click on the link to the right on the Blog, or click this link.

Here is just a sample of the many shots taken of the fleet of 18 Flexity 2 trams.  There is a fleet list and more photos on the 'page'.

RCAY 505

About time I got a decent shot of an RCAY cont-stretch wagon.  These are former VQCY wagons modified with 70T bogies, and extra structure and cones.  

Due to the jumbo coil not running during July, these wagons have been turning up on the rear of MS2 some mornings.

AN3 Leading on the South

Something a little unusual on the south during July.  AN3 leading MS2.  

NR14 behind carried the Real Trains slogan.

Another Ghost

CLF3 has now entered service with SSR, painted in all white.  Named Space Ghost, it joins CLP12 Casper in traffic.

CLP12 is due to get an ICE radio shortly so it can lead.  CLF1 is being painted into SSR livery at Seymour and L277 has just been delivered to SSR at Cootamundra for reactivation.

Long live the EMDs!

First LDPs on the Tahmoor Coalie

LDP003 led TM81/82 yesterday with sister unit LDP002 on the rear.  Not the cleanest units but certainly something different.  In recent years we have seen 93 class and TT class used, but this was a first.  I got some shots at Mittagong on both the up and down directions.

Sadleirs Van Repaint

Great to see another repaint of an RLSY since there hasn't been any in a long time!  

On PS7 this morning was RLSY 18718, the first repaint in a number of years.

TS Lines Variety

One of my favourite shipping lines is TS Lines.  They pretty much lease containers from all the major leasing companies and they always mark them with their logo.  The end result is a hybrid of a lease container (of all different colours) with the same TS Lines logo.  

The below photos are just an example of the variety on one train this week.  

TS Lines is the 19th largest shipping line in the world, with around 100,000 TEU capacity across 45 ships which are owned or chartered.

Coregas NKBU Tube Skid

This was a first for me.  A 40ft tube-skid on PS6 today.  This one was marked for Coregas and is for compressed Hydrogen.  

The container is NKBU 130887-8 and appears to have 8 tubes which are slightly offset within the frame.  

The container is from NK group in Korea.
