Un-rare Workings

One of the attractions of early era modelling is the enormous variety of workings that can be run. Beyond the typical (which by todays standards had huge variety), the following three workings have occured in the course of operations on Glenburn, and show just some of the working types that would have been less than typical, but far from rare in the period modelled.

E Class is called upon to working a rag tag assortment of stock back to Melbourne.

Twin swing door Motors power an Up short E train, crossing the outward bound midday Parcels Motor.
A Parcels Motor is called upon to run the Dn afternoon goods, here sweeping through Glenburn. This load will hardly tax her, single motors were rated for quite a few more wagons.

Another Celebration!

Like the E Class Electric, the D4 has been a long time coming, so I took some pictures to celebrate her arrival.
