Thanks for the warning that this train was running, I feel i was a bit asleep for not picking that it would be running.........
I have taken some shots of the train on the west line.
The train is being used to put out the sleepers for the resleepering of the East line. X46 is on the Albury end of the train. Only a single excavator is being used for unloading as they have all the access time on the west line they require.
The photos are taken about 10 kilometers sth of Springhurst ie about 3 k's sth of the Boralma Rutherglen rd level crossing. They started to put out sleepers just sth of the mentioned level crossing that is this is the 2nd day of the train. I would think that it will be running most days until the sleepers are all out.
Train arrived at the site just after sunup, 18 sleeper wagons are being used.
Although the train was only going slow the rail never moved at all a great change for the better.
Things are looking up, I cannot wait to have i ride on this line.....
8121 on the west line, old SG on the right
X46 on the move, the train is moving up one length to allow the excavator to do the second pass.
