Port Waratah loco

Wintry Saturday afternoons lend themselves to blogging. And so it is today.

Not really sure what made me think of Port Waratah depot. Anyway I have, so here comes a dozen snaps from that location running from April 1964 through to the end of steam.

From that earlier period, 5251 leads a line of stored steam locos.

This line of stored steam sandwiches a 35 between two standard goods locos. 

Next up, working steam, but a bit quirky.  5195 has an EHO in tow. 

5114 has a shunting tender attached, in the foreground of the coaling tower ramp.

A couple more shots from around this location. First up, 1904 up high.


 Then 3090T going about shunting duties (taken from a heavily degraded slide)



And 3246 getting coaled at this location.


1955 was caught shunting non-air four wheel coal hoppers.



Finally, to the turntable - 5475 is adjacent to the roundhouse.


And to finish off with a couple of garratts between shifts.



Cheers,
Don.
