Above is a shot of a south bound, I guess Brisbane Freighter service, the first three wagons are AOOX's loaded with Telegraph poles, all I am going to say, is these don't look like the Auscision loads, seem to be slightly longer and skinner, with finished ends, and they jammed in there, ggod and proper.
I can't remember seeing AOOX's loaded with poles like this passing through Port Augusta, but does not mean that its didn't happen, more likely I didn't photograph it.
I have dusted of the slide scanner and cropped out some shots of AOOX and ABFX's operating in 1993. Hopefully this will help you loading your new
AOOX and ABFX's. On the Alice Springs side of things, I have started constructing the four boards for the remaining sections of Alice Springs yard.
|Two AOOXs on 4AP1 at Spencer Junction, loaded to the Victorian Loading gauge, would make a great project, for creating an interesting load. Weathering patterns include extra rust below the side doors|
