    I'm just wondering if any of you know why right near my house there is a parked coalie... no engine or anything, just about 3 carriages or so and around it is a big fence, and it isnt on any tracks...


    Any of you know why it is there?:confused:

    (if you are wondering what a coalie is)> http://perthtrains.nachohat.org/image/2310/

    Maybe the freights are sitting there awaiting repair. They were probablly taken off the tracks because they werent safe on them and fenced in so they might be protected against vandalism or any other damage..

    As far as posting images, just go to www.imgspot.com and upload your pics on there and copy and paste the url.

    if im not mistaken, a coalie is what australian writers call coal cars.
    there is a small write up on "coalies" in the Spring 96 issue of steel wheels.

    i dont know about down under but in the us if a cut of cars is chillin somewhere without any tracks it usually means it is scrapped, but i have very rarely seen trains without tracks.

    if the car has been sitting for along time dont paint it. it probably means it wont be leaving any time soon and people will notice. painting trains that leave the yard the next day is ok because people who work around those cars probably wont notice if theyre painted or not from one day to the next....check the surface of the track, if theres a lot of rust developed on the top it probably means that lines abandoned and so is the car. if the track is shiney on top if may get some service but that still doesnt mean it will be leaving soon. keep an eye on it...and i dont know how it is in austrailia but i wouldnt be sweating a coal car either...unless its all you got....in that case do a fucking wholecar. seriously.
