46s at rest
Just thought I'd start the week with a few shots of 46 class electrics stowed at Port Kembla from 1989 to 1994. Not for any reason in particular except that they were rather interesting looking beasts that ended up wearing distinctive liveries under their common hue of coal.
To start, three shots of 46s in Indian Red. Throught the wire and under the wire here are 4604 and 4605
Then 4619, carrying a memorial to Valley Heights loco depot.
Then the custard pot 4606.
Next up, 4626 and 4630 at the same spot on 6 February 1993.
Going to duck over to the nearby coal loader for this next one. 4606 had lost its custard pot scheme by this time, but it still retained its coal dust overlay. The date was 29 October 1994.
And to wrap up, Boxing Day was usually a day to find a bounty of locos in every depot. In 1994 4613 was to found peaking out from behind a Tangara set.
House cleaning is calling. Better wind this up here.
Ciao for now!
