BURNIE PAGE MAY/JUNE 2001
2150 working the spur line to the Brambles terminal on
Thursday 21 June 2001
2150 disturbing the seagulls.
On May 1, 2001, the PVH shunter was on the storage track
with 10 class locos 1002 and 1003. At this time it seemed as if this loco had
reached the "end of the line". Updated news and photos are on the
"PVH leaves Burnie" page.|
However by the middle of the month it was business as usual again
as the PVH (No. 21) was back doing its shunting job. These pics were taken Wed 30th May 2001
and shows the engine parked outside the original EBR station, with rumours circulating
that the station may be purchased soon by the local city council.
Plenty of action re the 10 class locos...1004 has already gone to Lithgow to the Zig Zag railway,
now 1001 is on blocks in the southern end of the yard.
Under a beautiful blue sky train 72 is crossing Edwards St. as it arrives
in Burnie Wed 2nd May. By the middle of the month only three 11 class were
operable, and 1002 was taken from the storage track and put back into service.

For the first time, an 11 class is now parked on the storage road. (1106)
2012 on train 38 at South Burnie.
Now for something older......ZC42, now out of service, is
leading what was to be the last train west of Burnie for some 14 months.
This train is passing by the site of a washaway of the line that closed
the line on August 28th 1996. The washaway was repaired to
enable retreival of log wagons still at Black River. This run was made on 5th November 1996.
