A few photos from our travels in 2005
With the completion of the new railway and the rail tracks onto the Eastern Breakwater in Geraldton several new photographic
opportunities have become available. 2505 is seen with the Port's "Welcome to Geraldton" sign as a backdrop on 24
South Spur Rail Services R1902 hauls a loaded rail
train towards Narngulu on 12 July 2005. The rail is destined for the new Narngulu to Geraldton Rail line.
DA1575/DA1573/1906 haul an empty grain train out of
Narngulu on 11 July 2005. Great to see three of the 7 DA (1900) class on the one train.
How times change. This is a photo of one of the ballast trains being used to assist in the construction of the Geraldton Southern
Transport Corridor. The loco ZB2125 is from Tasmania (TasRail), before its move it was actually purchased new by Queensland
Rail and used in Queensland. The wagons are ex Victorian Railways ballast hoppers.
The train is seen adjacent to PortWay in Beachlands on 13 July 2005.
Another photo of ZB2125 (see above for further details). The ballast train is seen at Separation Point, once a Caravan Park.
This was the current "end of the line" as of 13 July 2005. Only about 2.5km from Geraldton Port.
P2009 arrives at Narngulu with a loaded iron ore train from Mullewa on 25 June 2005.
