That is odd.

Spotted an 'M' series cafeteria car for sale in the front yard of a house at Molong of all places.
12:30 - 2820 Freight north bound @ Strathpine
2473+2472 dropped off new rail between Wynnum North and Wynnum early this morning.

Also noticed a speed board reminding to slow to 50 ( the official speed ) on the curve between the 2 stations.  Having travelled that section often, 50 is often the minimum speed with only 1 minute allowed on the UP line but 2 minutes allowed on the DOWN.
Driving D17 122 for the last time on 175 down in Feb 1967 at Buranda before she was scrapped.

Sighting Sat 29/10/2016

1600hrs (approx) 2350 + 2302D down coal Yarrala
I noted that 2350 is wearing shiny new name plates, but could not read the name as I was driving. I think 2350 has also lost the 'D' (perhaps it never had one, but it is wearing the latest Aurizon livery, all the other 2300s without the 'D' are still wearing the old QR "Broncos" livery as far as I can tell).

A friend reported seeing a locomotive on the back of a truck eastbound on the Warrego Hwy through Dalby during the past week. Anyone know what it might have been?

There is a 2470 class (I think)  that has a bent nose, it might be getting that fixed.

I'm pretty certain that there isn't a 'D' on the cab side, but I was driving so it is possible I'm mistaken.
