I'd be interested to know if there is a back issue of the Oily Rag with the story, history or restoration of the Holt 45 crawler that is at Roseworthy? because I'd really like to read about that. There must have been a few Holt 45's sent to SA, as that's where they all seem to be.

Hi Ian,
Earlier this week I finally found out what happens here where we live in a small village just north of Taree NSW. We were away in Newcastle the weekend before and when looking around in the rail yards I found what I thought was a new locomotive. Took pics and sent them to a friend who laughed and told me that those model locos were made at Goninans in 1990 and were quite common. So I have come to the conclusion that although the main Northern rail line goes very close to us, about a kilometre away and that we can hear trains heading north and south on a regular basis that we must be in a time warp here as I have never seen one of these EL locos before. Mind you, we are both happy to be ignorant of some changes in the outside world.

they were also over in WA somewhere possibly Perth and also trade as Grasslands while they were making Caterpillar parts like dump truck bodies and back hoes locally here in Taree. Locally they have had 3 name changes since 1988 that I know of.

A. Goninan and Co were founded in 1905 - and in W.A., Goninan were located in Wood St, Bassendean - in the former Comeng Bassendean plant/factory, which was built in 1952.

The Govt sold all its shares in Comeng in 1957, and Comeng was purchased by ANI in 1982.
ANI sold the former Comeng Bassendean plant/factory to A. Goninan & Co in 1990.

In August 1999 A Goninan & Co was sold to United Group, and rebranded United Goninan.

In 2005 it was renamed United Group Rail as part of a reorganisation following the United Groups purchase of Alstom's Australian subsidiary, Alstom Transport Australia and New Zealand.

UGL Rail still operate from the original Comeng plant/factory in Bassendean, although the site has been expanded and modernised since Comeng built it.

I picked up several really nice huge big wooden crates off the verge outside UGL last week. They had been used to transport stators.
They are about a metre square and a metre high, and the timber in them is about 35mm thick!

Jayvee should be congratulated on printing the information he does. It might or might not be what he personally believes but we are all entitled to hear other peoples opinions and views. We also need to know what is happening out there. If something is going to potentially affect us then we need to know no matter how controversial it may be.
KEEP IT UP jayvee

Hi All,
Just your friendly courtesy note to say that #45 is being printed.
All being well, it will be in the post first thing Monday (1st February) morning.
I have no idea when you will receive it. (hopefully sometime during February would be nice)
Trying to figure out and understand Auspost's delivery system is
So far all I know is if you are in postcode areas;
2648
2715
2717 - 2719
2731 - 2739
Your magazine goes to Sydney then forwarded on to Melbourne for distribution.
2880 goes to Sydney only to come back to Adelaide
3689 - 3690 goes to Melbourne then Sydney and
4225 goes to Brisbane then Sydney

Another 30 seconds (of your life) wasted

Best wishes, jayvee

Umm think you have it wrong about the post.
I thought it went to china via the US and then to Alice Springs before going to the state capitals.

Could end up anywhere but its not your fault. Look forward to receiving and reading it.
Thanks Jayvee

Aussie post has a very different system, if you can call it that. I just bought and paid for a mig welder along with flux cored wire to suit from the same seller on the same day at the same time. Wire arrived in 4 days welder took another 7. All were on the same paperwork number but local post office claimed that only 1 item per item number was possible. Once the welder arrived I proved that theory wrong.
Look forward to the next issue of the Oily Rag.
