The curse of Cowan struck Patricks last night!!! 4174 with GL106 and GL109 stuck up at 53.884km near the Firetrail Level crossing, being unable to lift the load. A nice wet night for getting stuck and we were the second train to stick up. Patricks 1473 was nearby and was backed into Cowan Loop, and EL62 RL304 and GL110 came and got us. All up, my mate and I got 14 hours for the shift.

Cheers

Wow I don't get to make many train sightings nowdays but this morning BHP103 was sticking her nose out from under the Botany Road bridge in the driving rain this morning. Time was 06.02 and I couldn't make out what loco was with her and not enthused enough to get out of the car and soaking wet :-)

Part of the Main South was closed on the weekend for trackwork, which meant for some unusual traffic on the Illawarra/South Coast/Unanderra-Moss Vale lines.

This included several XPTs, and various freights (which due to my injury I was unable to get outside and identify Confusedad: ). Also 3801+water gin+3 carriages came thru yesterday round 11-ish.

General to have Bearings failing in service means that maintenance is not being undertaken.

Excuse me, are you suggesting that some of these small operators don't carry ut their maintenence on a regular basis?
I am horrified that you could suggest such a ghastly thing.

Yep you bet. I had to enjoy seeing the sight of an Jumbo in the care of LVRF shooting flames out the exhaust. MMMM that means the turbo absolutely stuffed! From what I was told that unit failed on route back to Botany with you guessed it lack of lube oil.
