G-Class G512 (model JT26C-2SS)
Title:  G-Class G512 (model JT26C-2SS)
Description:  G-Class unit G512 sitting by the Goulburn depot. The 33 G-class units were built by Clyde/GM in the mid-to-late '80s for the Victoria RWY. The 3300HP design represents typical Aussie double-ended boxcab diesels of the period. They've been subsequently dispersed among several operators. This example wears the markings of Specialized Container Transport Co (SCT) although it's actually owned by Chicago Freight Car Leasing-Australia (CFCLA)

Broad Gauge Action at Footscray West
Title:  Broad Gauge Action at Footscray West
Description:  An El Zorro-operated loaded grain train pulls out of the Tottenham Yard in Western Melbourne, probably headed for unloading at Appleton Docks. Two G-Class Clyde/EMDs suffice for power. This point, at Footscray West, is where the broad gauge freight line splits from the much newer standard gauge tracks, which run to Sydney.

Title:  El Zorro G-class G532
Description:  Australian operator El Zorro currently has a pair of Clyde/EMD G-class units in its stable. Both are shown here on a grain train running past the West Footscray metro station. Both are currently set up for wide gauge (5'6") tracks; G532 was trucked for standard gauge the last time I saw it, in 2011 in NSW. The G-class is internally similar to EMD's SD40-2.

Grain at Goulburn
Title:  Grain at Goulburn
Description:  Only a few minutes after the morning Canberra Xpolrer DMU has departed and just before the daily Sydney-Melbourne XPT arrives the dispatcher slips an "up" Pacific National grain train through Goulburn NSW behind the standard pair of 81-class units. Australian railroads have a delightful mix of English and American themes. The station architecture and track design is right out of the UK. Rolling stock and locomotives are generally based on US styles. Note the water spout just beyond the platform- steam didn't quit here until the early '70s and still makes an occasional appearance as part of a heritage event.
