The 2015 drink drive world discovery tour

Hi All

Here are some pictures of this years tour.
First train of the trip
XR557 and XR558 on the tocumwal goods.
 XR558 is getting some nice fade effect.
 At Narrandra we spotted Grain Corps' 48203 48201 and 48205 are loading the final half of their train.  The 81 class is next to the loader, to repeat the requested movements from the silo staff, which didn't have a radio.

 Silo operator repeating instructions to the crew member in the airconditioned 81 class.
 At Parkes we snaffled G513 and an SSR on a loaded Westerns grain job
 Venerable C509 at Parkes loco.
 next morning we spotted FIE003 FIE002 and FIE001 at the fletchers siding north of Dubbo.
A high end operation, heavy investment for long term gain,  SSR guys to the ops.

 A quick trip across to Werris Creek, we saw where all the XGAYs are stored in all the loops along the way.
However we snaffled Scott with a John Holland ballast train heading for West Tamworth tonight, then onto Armidale.
