Sad news for Ashburton

Edited

Hi all - the Dsc shunter has been removed from Timaru on Friday. This news
from David Oakley.



The loco was only being used for the malt siding which gives rail about 5 to
6 wagons a day. There are at least 2 private sidings at Ashburton - the malt
siding is the only one in use

Is traffic still handled in the main yard?
