It's All backwards, What's With That?

The discovery of a broken side control spring on G42's hind engine unit was soon followed by the dawning realisation that with the engine facing the 'Down' direction - towards Gembrook, as all our engines do - the workshop wasn't long enough to get the pony truck in question over the drop-pit in the workshop.

This necessitated a stopover at Emerald whilst the loco was carefully placed on the turntable and turned to face the 'Up' direction. Luckily, at that time, the 2.30 departure from Belgrave terminated at Emerald, giving plenty of time and some added interest from the passengers.
