A selection of photos from the 2006/2007 period. Quite a bit of variety and loco colour schemes are around at this time.

ZB2120 hauled a ballast train to Mullewa distributing ballast along the way, the first 30kms proved a test and the train had to be split twice. Here is one section near Bringo and this is not the first train to have difficulties due to the combinations of grade, curves, load & individual loco performance, only weeks later P2014 on a loaded iron ore also succumbed. Photo taken 25 November 2006.
