Again, I find myself chasing trains around Sth Canterbury while letting the offspring systematicaly dismantle Grandad and Nana Druffs house. This morning saw me and the boy out in Nana Druffs red sportscar to see trains 920D and 923 cross in the Timaru yard.
Not much to report on that front, just about every train I see these days seems to have 7117 or 7199 on the front (and so it proved again today). However, holed up at the old car and wagon depot was this:
DX5483 is now the last DX in Blue since 5310 (with its funky long hood) was sent to Hutt shops, and was sitting here after stopping suddenly while on the head on 922 at Temuka last night. We had seen it leaving Dunedin earlier in the day (with a cloud of smoke as it crossed Blanket Bay) in attendance with DC4133, which is one of the few fruit salad DC's still in existance.
So where to now for 5483? Could it be time for KR now its KO'd??
