New South Wales Railways 57 Class 4-8-2 Heavy Goods Locomotive
Sargent, John
ISBN: 1921122005
Train Hobby Publications Australia Studfield, Victoria, Australia 2005 First Edition
 Soft Cover 48 pages profusely illustrated colour photos - The New South Wales D57 class locomotive was a class of 4-8-2 steam locomotive operated by the New South Wales Government Railways in Australia. A total of 25 Mountain-type 3-cylinder steam locomotives were ordered by the N.S.W.G.R in 1929. They were built at the Clyde Engineering Works, Granville. They were among the heaviest of locomotives in Australia, at 250 tons, and this restricted them to only certain parts in New South Wales. However, they were very reliable and had the nickname "Lazy Lizzies" because they made heavy workings seem effortless. They were mostly held at Lithgow roundhouse and were used on heavy coal workings over the Blue Mountains, sometimes weighing 2000 tons. In 1960 the class began to be withdrawn and the last locomotive, 5711, was written off in 1963. The three cylinder design fitted to the class gave it a distinctive off-beat exhaust sound when climbing upgrade. This design was also fitted to the D58 class. However, a couple of features, such as the Gresley conjugating valve gear fitted to these locomotives has been the source of debate as to its efficiency.The only example left is 5711, which is currently being restored by the Valley Heights branch of the New South Wales Rail Transport Museum at their site in Valley Heights Roundhouse for static display.   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
