  Waltzing Matilda Centre, Winton, Destroyed by Fire
Posted by: Graham4405 - 18-Jun-2015, 09:14 AM - Forum: Queensland - Replies (3)

Sad news this morning that the Waltzing Matilda Centre, Winton was completely destroyed by fire during the early hours of this morning. The centre was home to BB18¼ #1077 (or possibly #1015 or #1028). I wonder how the loco fared during the extensive fire?

News report

BB18¼ Locomotive #1077

  Goonyella System Horn Noise
Posted by: watchdog - 16-Jun-2015, 07:18 PM - Forum: Queensland - Replies (3)

Does anyone on here have an idea or know of the following:
1.What the actual dBA levels/rating is on loco horns on above line?
2. What is QR/PNQ/Aurizon WHS/Environmental Policy on horn noise.
I thought that I read where it was 85 dBA but am not sure.
A friend of mine lives in Nebo region and reckons that lately there is more horn usage at existing static locations LX's/ Whistle Boards/Crosses etc.
Also what is he Whistle Board requirement on fully protected triple track LX?
Any links to anything above greatly appreciated as I cannot find it now.
Thanks for that

  Cattle Train Promise

An interesting (and long) article in the Queensland Country Life.

Read the article...

It would seem that there is a bit of movement at the station. (Pun intended) Smile

  C17 812 on the Move
Posted by: Mick - 19-May-2015, 12:39 PM - Forum: Queensland - Replies (15)

Probably should be in the preservation thread but eh!

812 has been craned out of Atherton and on it's way to Brisbane - it was swapped for a couple of Peckett industrial locomotives. If you search for the facebook group 'Lost Cairns' you may find some photos of it being lifted, and others of it in better days. And possibly an evolving blow up that historic train sites seem to attract.

So this one might be for CNSylvester but anyone else if free to chime in: Do any of your records indicate whether 812 ever worked the Tablelands System. I think it spent a fair bit of time down Bowen way, and probably retired in the Innisfail Depot.
