Ummm no, I do know where it, even seen the signs for the town driving past.What I meant was if the line is bi-di, do they force the UP's onto the spiral. My thinking being if the lines are bi-di and you have the horses and no opposing traffic, the direct route would offer a small time saving, which maybe of use if running a bit late. Save 5min maybe?I don't think Shane realises that Bethungra is on the Sydney-Melbourne line, not on a branch line.
Most unlike Shane to not realise the Bethungra spiral is part of the main line. We learn something every day. 8)
I understand what you are getting at!
However this section of the Main South is simply the standard Up and Down setup. There is no Bi-Di in place on the double track sections south of Menangle (except for certain moves at places like Gbn, Yass Junction, Coota and Junee). Notwithstanding this, wrong line working can take place in special circumstances, such as accidents and trackwork.
