Tasmanian Tour - that train

Postby E.L.Wood » Sat Apr 25, 2009 1:01 am

I also managed a shot of the PN train which ran past the Tasmanian Transport museum led by locos 2113,2111,2114,2112 & 2137.

I took a shot of 2137 in PN livery

Finally I've added a shot of DP26 as it creeps back into the yard after completing it's last run up the line.
yolo seems to be a bit of a trend!

Yes good catch there, seeing a train in Tas these days is rare as most run during the night except the Boyer paper train which sometimes you can see that one in the late afternoon at Brigewater or at Boyer yards but can run late.Another good place to see trains as well is at the regatta grounds as they enter the main frieght terminal near the water front , and again they can run late so you may get to actually see one also they usully leave the yard late in the afternoon.
If you head around to the where the old station yards used to be there is a siding not far from the highway and opp the cement depot (if depot still there)and is used to stable the loco's during the day most times and is open so you can walk up to the loco's and take some good shots. If you are at Brigewater you can drive a short way up the Midland Highway just past the East Derwent Highway turn off at the top of the grade and see them coming up the hill on their way back north,and really hear the locos on notch 8 as the lift their load out of Bridgewater even beter if they ar EE locos :D

Nice pics. I live close to the rail line in Hobart, (not far from the Metro depot) and hear the freight train go through each morning if I'm not already out on a bus. I used to catch the passenger trains occasionally as a kid but they stopped them when I was in early high school. Here's one of the fully operational steamer they had running at the transport museum open day.

Me too Steve. I caught them to New Town High which I attended from about '72-'75. I also used to live opposite New Town train station which I'm sure you saw re-assembled in all it's glory at the museum. Here's a rather poor shot of it.
