Hotham Valley Railway owned R1902, pictured here being loaded at Cohuna Wildlife park for movement to Pinjarra, is back operating on the main line again, however not on passenger trains. The English Electric machine has been reported operating out of the flashbutt welding depot at Midland for the last 4 days on rail trains. It is still in Westrail orange. Hotham valley Railway, who paid $35,000 for the locomotive, are obviously utilising the machine commercially in an effort to quickly recoup their outlay.
