My up train was cancelled on monday afternoon, so I got to take the Rolls through to Smart Road instead. As I was super early and had a couple of hours to kill, I went for a wander around the yard to see what I could find. Turns out the place was crawling with DSC's, so a few shots were taken for posterity.
2556 was towed up on 526, and will replace 2338 at the fert siding.
Whareroa's regular DSC 2624 has spent the winter hiding in New Plymouth on gantry duty.
Poor old 2257, owned by Ravensdown, went pop at least 6 or more years ago, and has not turned a wheel since.
VRB's in storage, unlikely to see active service again.
Two gas tanks sit on an IAB under the water sluice in the new transfer siding.
Another view of the sluice, the cage on the right being where the trucks park while transferring LPG to wagons.
DSC 2338 catches the late afternoon sun at the fert works.
Ex 520 that morning, 7241 and 5108 will be the power for my 529.
528 has been cancelled again today, so there will be another drive to New Plymouth today.
