Because of poor coal and re- pairs to several S class engines, the Victorian Railways have been compelled to use "Heavy Harry," a passenger and goods
engine, to draw the Spirit of
Progress to Albury recently.
"Heavy Harry," which broke down near Seymour on Monday night, was on emergency service between Melbourne and Albury, the Railways Commissioners said yesterday. It was an H class locomotive, built to operate "The Overland" express passen- ger service between Melbourne and Adelaide without the need for double-heading.
Pending strengthening of the track between Melbourne and Ararat, "Heavy Harry" was per- forming invaluable service on fast goods and emergency work between Melbourne and Albury.
