|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|

|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 refinery at Gabledon is running out of crude oil so your job today is to collect crude from Cudgee oil and take it to Gabledon Refinery and unload there.
You can then return to Altona and after putting the train into the yard and stabling the locos, you can knock off.
It's a cold, wet day but the work still has to be done. So climb aboard your loco and couple up to the train in the next road, then set back to take the empty coal wagons off.
Then it's over to the siding and pick up some extra oil wagons. Work your way to Altona and then you can knock off for the day.
Today you are going to be the relief driver that relieved you in LOC34. Sound complicated? Not really.
Wait beside the track for the train to arrive. Change over, add an extra loco and depart Altona. Work your way to Port Hunter and unload the diesel fuel and coal. Place the train in the yard and put your loco away.
That's it for the day
Make up your train at Altona and drive to Gabledon Refinery. Fill oil tankers up with Diesel, then shunt loaded wagons into siding. On to Ceduna and place the cattle wagons for unloading. Then to the BMS Colliery and load the coal wagons. Run around the train and head back to Ceduna. If the cattle wagons are unloaded, pick them up. ( they won't be). Pick up the empty oil tankers and load them at Gabledon Refinery. Pick up the loaded tankers you left there on the way out. Head back to Altona where your changover relief will be waiting.

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.
