SSR 1377 Ballast

I recall that a mill wheat train used to be 1377 - often sighted on a Saturday afternoon in the southern highlands, with a string of 'blacks' (wheat hoppers - NGMA).  Anyway, earlier this week SSR ran a ballast job for ARTC (numbered 1377), positioning the rake at Yass for country ballast work.  The rake comprised of RailCorp/Transport NSW NDFFs.

 NDFF 2986 painted in the modern orange livery with RailCorp logos.
The last NDFF built - 3050 - built at Goulburn Workshops a few years back.  This wagon is now fitted with a Transport NSW logo.

Plough NZBF 1042 with full width wegiths and only the end handrails.
