    The red C38 doesn't look too bad, actually... (ducks for cover). Maybe on a rake of red and cream clerestory roof HX/CBC type cars!

    Have you messed with said scheme on a non-streamlined unit, Bear?? Maybe one with black smokebox... and an all over red??

    Humm was not thinking about it but now I am - the red/tuscan C38 came out far better that I original felt it would .

    There is no plans to repeat the sins of the past with a Candy C38

    Steve let me guess - Wondabyne Station on Mullet Creek on the line between Sydney and Newcastle. This is the only railway station in Australia that does not have any road access - access only by train, boat or hiking boots over the hills behind (I did that once - quite a climb). "Commuters" to the station (an "on request" only stop) use the small jetty as their parking lot.

    The steamer shown is a bit ambitious - while the the creek is quite wide, it is too shallow for anything other than small craft. Even the local ferries have to check the tides before venturing up the creek.

    The quarry shown virtually ceased operations since they removed the railway siding (not included in your screen shots) and it operated only when demand required before that. Wagon pickups and drop-offs would be by a late night northbound freight stopping at the station. I understand that it was quite a sight - a long container express train with usually just one gondola type wagon to or from the quarry.

    The quarry was used for decorative sandstone (building facings and sculptures) and I believe that there has only been one or two shipments out since the siding was removed years ago - they had to transport the stone across the tracks and load it onto a barge to ship it out. I believe that the quarry is now permanently closed.

    A very good effort.

    Thanks pware
    Yes, i know i have made it more that what Wondabyne was or is now but i was trying to create a little extra attraction, i remember the quarry well and all the old houses around 1 or 2 of the western side inlets,,
    I might cut the hole route down and set an upload for Wondabyne,,
    I have been trying to setup Hosting videos on my website so i can show videos of my routes because YouTube has gone crazy with regulation and if you are an outspoken person then you could find yourself in trouble,,
    Regards Steve

    Wonderful shots there Steve, Ryan, Dave. Top stuff guys.

    I hope to be back in it shortly. Change of residence, new furniture (all in flat-packs with hundreds of cam bolts and screws) just irons me out each day.

    Cheers,
    Roy

    Are there actual photos of the "alleged" locomotive? I have done searches all over the shop, even in highly regardedanalog loco books and failed to find even a mention of this allegation. Or is it getting close to 1 April? Dave is this another example of "loco abuse"? The heaviest locos ever to run over the blue mountains were D57 and D58. Even garrets were uncommon on the mountain line because of their braking system. their was a plan to create a streamlined garret for a pssenger services in C38 class green no less. It was going to be called the c39 from memory, but it never got past a scale1 model which showed up once at a model railways exhibition. So please, a photo would be nice, (back to man cave to hibernate)

    it was worth a good chuckle at least

    Due to the C39 being owned by the British War Department, all documentation covering it war duties are still classified under an 100 year embargo until 2045 and me publishing them here would see me in breech of the official secret act (1939) and really do not want to have to run off to the UK and hide in the Ecuadorean embassy.

    The only mention of the c39 was by a chap on railpage who knew someone who knew someone who hads seen a drawing at commonwealth engineering Clyde. He assumes they are in archives somewhere the config was 4-8-4, a stretched c38, not the great lumbering thing in the screenshot, which probably wouldnt get around the first NSWGR bend without derailing and ending uo in south australia. ps the 1939 secrets act has been superseded somewhat, if you did spill the beans you would go on a trial so secret that you would not even know if you had been on trail or for that matter completed a jail sentence

    cheer
