Load trials

The South Coast railway is in an area where many new locos are taken for running in and loads trials.
Recently I had a friend Wayne bring up his newly released West Australian Haskell L class loco.
It wasn't hard to miss. I think it is where they got the idea to make safety vests in orange. To compensate for this brightness a blue band was put horizontally along the loco.
Trials were successful.  The photographer caught up with the train at Bodalla where a triple header train hauled by a B, Y and T was passed by the L class on trial.
A few photos of the trial are here below.
