The northbound Ghan service has departed Adelaide on time, as we are on board, reacquainting ourselves with one of the barmaids from our trip on the IP last year.

I have just seen the MP9 that derailed last week. It had SCT002 and SCT011 and went through Ooldea between Cook and Tarcoola at 1805

Excellent News.

No Perth departure out of Melbourne as yet but plenty of Perth bound containers have been delivered to the yards over the past few days.  We should see some movement soon.

Did you intend to say 35 carriages?

Is that some kind of record?

G'day Ian,
Yes there were 35 carriages in the consist, 1AD8's consist has been between 29 and 35 most sundays during the past two months.
aAs for a record, No, a quick glance through my notes shows the highest recorded consist I have noted as 37 in March 2010, but one return (*DA8 )consist was larger after the Ban Ban Level Crossing incident a few years ago, when the regular Ghan also bought back the damaged consist and a number of flat cars with damaged bogies.
