I have been flat out recently, at work almost every day as we barrel head long into the peak of the milk season, but there has not been much chance to go nutting, not that there has really been much to foam about - just the same locos, same trains, same locations as always...
That said I have picked up and extra shift and am now on 52 shunt this afternoon and then have to go to New Plymouth and bring 523 down. This should yield the chance to get some shots of the loco depot today, weather permitting.
I have attached a few photos below for your viewing pleasure.
Three up on 544 the other day. We have quite a few dead or half dead locos around at the moment and some interesting combos have been showing up.
A rather tied looking snot rocket..
Trying to be a bit arty farty.... I think I need more practice.
521 runs down the main while 544 unloads and the puddle jumper looks on.
544 on the main at Waitotara. DXB's 5016 and 5022 presiding. 5022 died later on and it was a slow trip home...
