RHs on Water and Rail

With the previous post locating Eureka's RHs on the water in the East China Sea it is time to have a look at some RHs on rail. The first photo from the Howard Armstrong collection shows 4439 on the Cullen Range at the head of a down goods on the way to Tumut with the load including three RHs loaded with cement for the Snowy Hydro Scheme. 

The second photo also from the Howard Armstrong collection shows the Boral Cement Plant in Tumut where at the other end of the journey the RHs will discharge their load of cement.

RH and Steel sided LCHs on the Water. 

Motor Vessel OOCL SEOUL has sailed from Shanghai and is currently in the East China sea.

Unlike previous sailings which called into Hong Kong this voyage is direct from Shanghai to Port Botany which cuts three days from the sailing time. ETA Port Botany is now 16 May, 2019. 



Staff in our Shipping Department have consulted their crystal ball and suggest that the following can be expected to arrive in Port Botany in 2019.

                     TAM/MCS  ETA  August
                     38 Class re-run  ETA August
                     VR S flat, E and SAR bogie open wagons ETA July (With Pheonix)
