SERPENTINE (1992 Exhibition)

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.
