The All New And Very VERY Sexy, SMR THREAD!
#1
OK OK OK

  I am sick of hearing the endless whining about the lack of a dedicated 'South Maitland Railway' thread.
  Day and bloody night its whinge whinge and more whinge.

  Since I love my WoS family so much I have decided to make the effort and spend this morning starting this one for you.
  I know you are probably feeling a little overwhelmed at this moment, I am not surprised, it is of course a defining moment in WoS history. But please let us not let it overshadow such other great moments (mostly in the Hornbag section) and mostly, please lets not go down the track of offering naked shots of yourself again (I got enough after starting the deceased Botany thread).

  Now I know what your thinking!!!

  "This is a man of greatness, a man of vision, a man who knows what people want, a man full of shit".
  But please, please don't hold me in such high esteem. I really wish to be considered to be more like you guys, the little people, the ones who have given me the fame I enjoy today.

  So welcome to this greatest of all threads. A thread where you can join in, feel welcome, be made at home with the warmth of our company. Unless you post something non-SMR, upon which you will be given the arse.

Those people who can be half arsed to read my blogs and posts everywhere will be aware of SMRs plans to put in a new crossing loop at Neath.
  With fast rising traffic, the reinstalling of crossing facilities there is greatly needed and some of those champion surveyor type blokes have taken their heavy duty gunzel tripods out and done some of that stuff they apparently do (not that it looks like much).
  Markings, such as the one below, have been made on the ground. Actually markings were made on the ballast, the sleepers, the rail itself and even on poles.
  Perhaps those human vermin graffiti artist types have a job waiting for them after they get their butts out of jail.

  Anyway we think the marking below shows where the north end of the loop will be if the SMR decides to proceed with it.

This great Spadge, although it would be good to avoid just one (1) SMR thing. Namely, SMR 30 :evil

What times do the up and down Pelton trains go through Maitland? Smile

How many other 48 classes run in that section? I saw a 48s (Silverton?) leading a loaded coalie through East Maitland one Sunday arvo, is that a regular run?

Oops, am I taking this off-topic? :confused

No, thats certainly on topic. There will be no arse kicking today.

PN trains can be found going down the line anywhere between 00.01 and 00.00 each day. While they are supposed to be weekdays only, I often see them on weekend runs.

Silvo trains are usually out around 7am-8am of a weekday morning and normally back before lunch. Weekends, especially Sunday, usually see two runs. One goes out in the early hours and one in the arvo.
Again, you really can't pick times.

There is a SMR website with a list of locomotives known to have gone out there. Its still under construction.

Hope this helps, though I can't see how :-)

Perhaps joining us for a Neath weekend may be in order.

Cheers

  Hmmm we were one week early.
  Triple 48 class, ahhhh memories of the 80s, hauled a rake out to Pelton and back today with 48129 48134 48137 up front.
  Thats enough to make even the most miserable of railfans malibog!
