Super Power on the VR - Victorian Railways 4-8-4 H Class Pocono Heavy Goods Locomotive
Badaway, Emile & Sargent, John & Berry, John & Pantlin, Graeme & Dunn, Philip
ISBN: 1921122072
Train Hobby Publications Australia Studfield, Victoria, Australia 2006 First Edition
 Soft Cover 48 pages profusely illustrated b&w photos - The H class was an express passenger steam locomotive that ran on Victorian Railways from 1941 to 1958. Intended to eliminate the use of double heading A2 class locomotives on Overland services on the steeply graded Western line to Adelaide, wartime restrictions led to only one locomotive being built. Nicknamed "Heavy Harry", H 220 was the largest locomotive ever built in Australia and the largest non-articulated steam locomotive to run on Australian railways. Although it had been built to work the Western line to Ararat, a number of bridges along the route required strengthening before the H class locomotive with its 231/4 ton axle load could enter regular service on this line. This work was deferred due to wartime restrictions on available resources. As such, H 220 was put to work on the only line able to accommodate its loading gauge and high axle load : the North-Eastern line to Albury, where it hauled express passenger services, fast goods services, troop trains, and on the odd occasion when the regular S class Pacific was not available, the Spirit of Progress. H 220 gave an indication of its capabilities on one such run of the Spirit in the late 1940s by reportedly topping the 5-mile (8 km) long 1 in 50 Glenroy Bank at 45 mph (72 km/h) (three times the typical S class-hauled speed at this point[9]) and going on to pass Seymour 13 minutes ahead of schedule and arrive at Albury at 20 minutes ahead of the 10:40 pm scheduled arrival time. H 220 never operated in its intended role as power for The Overland, although it did make a brief appearance on the Western line in 1949 when it ran a series of trials with the VR dynamometer car on goods trains from Melbourne to Ballarat. Results from the dynamometer car showed that the locomotive developed around 3,300 drawbar horsepower (2,460 kW) at 47.5 mph (76 km/h), and a starting drawbar tractive effort of 52,000 lbf (230 kN).  New

Victorian Railways T Class Clyde EMD Diesel Electric Locomotive 1st Series - Flat Top
Sargent, John
ISBN: 1876249617
Train Hobby Publications Australia Wantirna, Victoria, Australia 2001 First Edition
 Soft Cover 48 pages colour photos - The class can be divided into three main styles by appearance, and into further groups by the design drawings and equipment fitted. Flat tops : T 320 - T 346 & 413 (first order). Based upon an EMD export locomotive design, this order had a low cab and roof. T413 was built for use on the private 3 ft 6 in (1,067 mm) Fyansford Cement Works Railway near Geelong, but was later sold to the VR. High cabs : T 347 - T 356 and T 357 - T 366 (second and third orders). They differed from the flat tops by having a high cab but were mechanically similar. The 3rd order had an altered radiator design. Low nose : T 367 - T 398 and T 399 to T 412 (fourth and fifth orders). The fourth order introduced a new low nose that provided greater driver visibility, and a more modern generator. The fifth order introduced the newer EMD 645E engine, replacing the older EMD 567 used before. The H class diesel electric locomotive were part of the fifth T class order,[3] but had additional equipment fitted resulting in their recoding. 'Flat top' T413 became a regular on the steeply graded Cudgewa line as it was the only locomotive of the class with dynamic brakes.T334 was repainted into the bright pink 'Ozride' livery in 1986, for use in a documentary film for the training of V/Line employees into how not to run a railway. Filming runs were made throughout July 1986 at Moorabool, and Spencer Street Station with three Harris carriages also used, repainted pink on one side only and with their pantographs tied down   New
