7 GE's at Moss Vale!

9307/ 9305/ NR115/ NR4/ NR89 roll through Moss Vale station with XW4 steel train to Port Kembla while NR50/ NR56 watch on from the up refuge before heading over into the down refuge to attach to 4NY3 steel service to Whyalla.

 

NR56/ NR50 were detached from XW4 to allow 9307/ 9305 to be taken off 4NY3 and sent back to Sydney.

 

The 93's had come from Sydney Freight terminal on NY3, after working 3MB4 from Melbourne, they were detached and were not permitted onto the Railcorp network due to weight restrictions, the 93 class can only have 7300 max fuel level which gives them 134 tonne gross weight and 9307 was well above that level so they were sent back onto the short south to burn some fuel off!!

 

Hope that all makes sense folks haha.
