    Default Bit of Australian stuff

    Ex-Victorian Railways C class. Still a long way to go yet. Windows need to be cut in, the horn and sunshade need to be added, as to the steps and new handrails, and then the detailing starts.

    I have zero knowledge on these locomotives but it looks like a SD40.

    It's a locally-built variant. Those trusty little 40s were so popular they wound up Down Under, too

    They are 134 tonne gp40's with co-co bogies and 6 traction motors.
    We use light rail in Oz.
