  Calgully Deputy Commissioner

Location:
Palabora has departed Lae (PNG) and is now in the Solomon Sea - nearly in Australian Waters.

According to Qships website, it's due Fishermans Island No1 on 9 September at 6:30am.  It's scheduled to depart at 1am the following morning - so the trams will be unloaded on Monday.  Canons at the ready!

One thing worries me though - we know Abbott hates urban rail, but surely he wont turn back this boat???

Yep at pilot 0630, alongside around 0930. From what I heard unload around lunch. Will be a cool move to the Gold Coast!

This tram wont be much good with all the dunkings it has had. First the Suez and then the Arabian Sea.

There are two on board and below in the tank deck, not really fussed how they roll at the GC, will look good on the back of a truck.
