|Jenolan||:||Just sold my truck, apart from our farm Kelpie Oscar, that is all of the farm gone.|
|shenley||:||And best wishes to you and all our RBR friends. Peter|
|shenley||:||Thanks for the info, Larry. I hope 2020 is good for you and Helen and that life in your new location is settling down. I've just rung Norm and got the phone number, direct to his room, and his new email address. He sounded just like the "old Norm". He said he has difficulty walking these days but he can still read with the aid of a magnifying glass. He said his nursing home is excellent and he is happy where he is.|
|Jenolan||:||Norm has a new email address, anyone that needs it should contact me...|
|Jenolan||:||Just hit 40°C here ... Endolin Weather|
|Jenolan||:||To save money web site hosting has been reduced and AWS file hosting of the compendium removed|
|shenley||:||Thanks for the update, Larry. Just spoke to Norm and he sounded in good spirits. He said life in the retirement village was very good. Like you said, he misses all the great RBR days (we all do). I've now got the phone number to his room so it will be easier for me to ring him in the future. He said he had to go because Bingo was on in a few minutes.|
|Jenolan||:||Norm said he is having a lot of problems with his sight, miss all of the old crew RBR was really something grand when it was rocking|
|shenley||:||Thanks, Larry. I was wondering how Norm was getting on in the aged-care facility. I will give him a phone call soon. He said it might be difficult getting through to him now. Not surprised he has retired from RBR scenarios. Pleased he is still OK. Regards, Peter|
|Jenolan||:||Heard from Norm, no more RBR... I am still pondering paying (again) for the latest Trainz and writing Activities using the terrible rule based sessions|
The Dairy at Norris Green is desperately short of coal.
Your job for today is to remedy that problem by supplying a train load of coal.
Pick up the empties at Altona and take them to Goldex Mine.
Load them, loading will be checked, complete your load with other loaded wagons in the yard.
When the train is assembled head for Norris Green Dairy Siding.
There you can uncouple the locos and after placing them in No 2 road, knock off for the day.
All junctions will be set for you. Running a RED signal or speeding could lead to the sack.
Have a good day.
Man the Loco that has just arrived on the Commissioners Train. Wait for the uncouple and then couple to the other loco in the shed beyond the T/Table, Shunt and pick up the empty chip wagons, sleeper wagons and the rail wagons. Drive to Carringbrooke Lumber and load the chip wagons. On to Ashburn and place the rails and sleepers in a siding. Recouple to the chip wagons and unload the chip wagons at Kierra Valley Pulp Mill. Reload the empty wagons with coal at Snake Gully Coal, Return to Ashburn, shut down the train and knock off.
Don't run any RED signals
All junctions and signals will be changed for you..
Return from SkyRail Nirimba to Kalandra. First turn the loco on the turntable. Next reverse the train cars. Wait for the passengers to load.. Head for Kalandra STOPPING ALL STATIONS, Change over crews at Kalandra. And that's it for the day.
Don't pass any signals at RED without permission or your services will be terminated...
B.T.W. If you should see any upsidedown cable cars crossing the track near the turntable at Nirimba please treat it as an optical illusion as it is a built in fault that I am unable to rectify.
A nice and easy job for you today. Weather is good, light wind and no rain forecast. Change over at Kalandara and drive the Narrow Guage Pass to Terrenlea. After the passengers disembark for the SkyRail, refuel the loco and take the empty train to Nirimba to pick them up at the end of their trip. There you will be relieved by a changeover crew.
The factory at Jindowee is almost out of diesel, so your job today is to pick up the loaded diesel wagons at Ashburn and deliver them to Jindowee.
Once you are there you can pick up a spare loco and bring the wagons loaded with general goods back to Ashburn.
Sorry about the weather
All signals and junctions will be set for you.
Have a good day.
