@jxeeno @erkpod If not, I may have just sent you down the rabbit-hole of the various kinds of staff-based train control systems.

@jxeeno @erkpod Ah! That’s kinda cool, if you know that system of train control?

@jxeeno @erkpod Here’s a copper ore concentrate train, but they’d use more locos coming over the Mountains. railpage.com.au/image?provider…

@jxeeno @erkpod Well Up, towards Sydney, is where it should be of course.

@jxeeno Oh, and from memory the containers aren’t full height. I’ll have to find a pic. (I took one ages back.)

@jxeeno The difference from general container freight is that it’s ONLY ore. The containers are a dark slightly-reddish brown.

@jxeeno BTW, coal trains are 45 cars (15 x 3-car units) open hoppers, 4 locos. Ore concentrate is toxic, in closed containers on flatcars.
