Maryborough West

Shunting 2


Is this a short train we see approaching from the south?

Actually ... no. What we are seeing here is 1744D - almost out of sight behind the traffic sign - shunting the Maryborough West yard. The loco just crossing the roadway is 2472D dead-attached - or travelling vehicle in Queensland Railway parlance.

The cab door is open because the shunter likes to put his feet up whenever he can :)
