More 1970 Reso


On Long Weekend in October 1970,  the WA division of the Australian Railway Historical Society in conjunction with the Western Australian Government Railways operated a RESO tour to Northcliffe.

This tour was steam hauled from Bridgetown south through Manjimup to Pemberton and on to Northcliffe using W 941 and W 903 and then return, stopping in Pemberton long enough for well known WA rail enthusiast David Beazley, to capture these wonderful pictures of the train.

On 12/10/1970

W 941 leads W 903 on Photo Runs/Stops between Pemberton and Manjimup

 

 

Here we see W 903 being turned on the Pemberton Turntable

This is the only picture we have that shows the engine shed at Pemberton Yard

 

 

On the left you are looking North towards the turntable and Manjimup.

In the Middle W 903 Stands at the head end of the train in the middle road .

On the right you are again looking North but this time past the station from the south end.

 

Note all the detail around the station

Sand box, flower pots (standard to most country stations), Out of shed, Telephone poles, Stack of sleepers, Name Boards etc.

 

All photos on this page have been sent to us by David Beazley

and for that we are grateful
