I have a note that 8 locos were used here, which checks. The only details I have are that one was Goodman 5743/1943 250 volt electric ohw trolley, later sold to BHP Burwood Colliery, and that some of the others dated from 1941. See the Adelaide Advertiser 31 May 1941 pg. 13 for an article on the (then) new operation at Glen Davis.
