I was out there Monday ... were there any off-train videos or were they mostly at station videos? Might help to narrow it down. I noted only a handful of chasers were out on Monday - most I could put ...

Has anyone noticed what comes up when you do a Google Image Search on Aurizon? .... It involves ear cleaning.

Post: RE: QR DH Class Locomotives for auction

DH71 has been privately secured ... although going off the photos posted, it's going to be a costly exercise to make something of it. It will most likely make its home at QPSR.

Post: RE: How many 1620 class locos are still around

With the changes happening at Redbank (ie. LMD closure), it should be forcing ARHS-Qld's hand sooner than later on the fate of 1650 and 1200. 1650 has a bright future ahead of it, if the right group c...

Flew on one of the new QF 737-800s down to Melbourne last Friday. It had the IQ IFE, but not the new Sky interior. I believe only Virgin Australia is getting them at the moment.
