Thanks for the interest all!   :-c

I had a quick look at Redbank yesterday.  NGR 701 & 715 are still there, resting quietly in the sunshine.   :fp:

Will have to go and check it out.  Good news.  I wonder if 715 is still there?

Still having our luncheon ...   :P

715 will probably be either repaired or receive a new lead car at the end of the production run, once the factory can generate spare parts or car.

Yo.  I expect it might go back to Wulkuraka too ( or possibly direct to Maryborough ). 
There was a QR DEL fairly adjacent 2472, but might be there for maintenance.

Seems not much point having it all by itself at Redbank for much longer ..

 :P

Saturday 16th Feb 2019, meet adjacent to the ' agistment ' paddock ( Progress Rail yard ) around 10.45am ( northern car park Redbank rail station ).

Not sure if 715 will still be in the paddock, but there probably will be the odd NGR up and down through Redbank ...  :P

I will get the  10.37 am ex Goodna ( leaves Central at 10.01am) arrives Redbank 10.41am.

Note there is a track closure on the weekend of the 16th Feb 2019:

A ' highlight ' was the arrival of NGR 701 at Progress Rail Redbank on the 21st December 2017.

I heard a NGR brake at Corinda a short while ago. High pitched squeals. Must be excited that 3 years looms! 🚇

Called into Redbank earlier this afternoon, 715 still in the ' agistment ' yard. Being worked on possibly doing something with brake lines.

A suggestion is that after lunch we head out to Wulkuraka for a look.  If you haven't been there well worth it.

Train to Ipswich then the Rosewood shuttle.

Sent to all outlets:

16th February 2019

Three years on with the NGR trains ..

Greetings,

RAIL Back On Track Members will today gather at Redbank for a ' celebration ' of the first three years of our new trains
- the New Generation Rollingstock (NGR) trains.  The first NGR train 701 arrived at the Port of Brisbane on the 15th February 2016
and was subsequently towed to Wulkuraka on the 19th February 2016.  NGR 701 is now at Maryborough as Downer staff
undergo familiarisation training with the NGRs prior to the commencement of the DDA rectification program.

Best wishes,

Great to catch up with some of our members at Redbank today.

Thanks guys for coming along. We had a great chat about many things, but what impressed me was that everyone was pretty much on the same wavelength when it came to improvements.  We will soldier on.   :-c :-t
