Re: Rail Tractor Classification

John Dennis
 

Good question Rod,

I can't find such a document.  Your two examples are pretty obvious - 4 wheel petrol mechanical and diesel mechanical - but I have recollections of seeing other, more complex codes.

I note on the Alexandra Timber Tramway web site some rail tractors are classified by a code such as 4wPM or 4wDM. 

Is there a document that lists and describes these codes,  I might access?

Have you received your copy of Light Railways No.251 yet? It was posted on Wednesday 5 October and seems to be going through the postal system rather slowly. I would be interested to know what parts of Australia it has arrived in so far.

Looks like the log jam might have broken. I have just received a report of a copy arriving at Warrandyte, another Melbourne eastern suburb today. That's nine working days to get across the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

Hopefully with the log jam broken there will now be an avalanche of arrivals!

The avalanche has not yet reached northwestern Sydney.

I have heard a rumour that Australia Post is having difficulty in handling a sudden burst of mail arising out of postal votes for Victorian Council elections.

So what's their excuse all the other times when Melbourne-posted magazines similarly get delayed?

Hello all,

If anyone does receive their copy in the mail, please let me know.

From what I can gather, no copies have been received anywhere !

I made enquiries of Australia Post "Cutomer Service" today and they
confirmed that the trolley containing them left Emerald post office the
day they were posted, and said there was no way of tracking them from
there. Their cavalier approach to apparently mislaying a whole trolley
dismays me. I have done some googling to find out how to escalate this,
which I will do on Monday.

Frank

I have noted the recent problems with Light Railways No 251 despatched via the postal system. Several years ago I was sent a group of rare colour slides via express post but they never arrived despite my subsequently doing a ‘letter box drop’ throughout our local area.

 

I now mainly purchase rail literature at the accredited book shop or via our local newsagent.
