In keeping with the Serpentine theme, we fast forward 30 years to the late 80's, Clyde built DB1587 crosses the Serpentine River with a fast goods heading towards Bunbury. The first QUA wagon will go further south to Manjimup so the containers can be loaded with freshly dug potatoes whilst the second QUG will be off loaded at Picton for loading with Superphosphate.
The DB class entered traffic in 1982/83 and were a further improved version of the D/DA locomotives. Unfortunately potatoes and superphosphate traffic has been lost to road transport.
The DB and rollingstock shown behind the locomotive were scratch built by Gavin Stallard in the 1990-92 period.

The SN3-1/2 Layout shown at the AMRA Model Railway Exhibition over the June long weekend was Serpentine, the following locomotives and trains were amongst those that run on the Saturday.
Built in the late 1890's, the O class were a heavy freight locomotive capable of operating over light 45lb rails. Seen at Serpentine is an example of this class of engine passing through on a long distance passenger train towards the end of its life as most had disappeared by the mid 50's when they were replaced with the W class.
Beyer Peacock built W954 crosses the Serpentine River on its way to the City with a general goods. Sixty W class locomotives were introduced in the early 1950's as part of the post war rehabilitation programme to replace obsolete, worn out locomotives like the O class previously mentioned.
Following the placement of the TA cattle wagon at the stockyard, Pr525 reattaches to its train and waits for the green signal prior to departing to Pinjarra. Introduced in the 1930/40's, the Pr's were the crack passenger locomotives of the WAGR prior to the introduction of the X class diesel locomotives in the mid 50's.
