The loads heavy mineral sand from the port to Hamilton, the mineral sand arrives in Portland by ship from Ceduna SA. Unsure how long this has been happening or is a new service?

3VL11 spotted at Southern Cross this morning but then this afternoon 2VL13 was still seen there. Are insertions on hold until wheel issues are attended to?

Location: Maldon Junction
A nice surprise last night in Maldon. The XYZ cars otherwise known as The Veteran Train rolled into town after the regular Sunday services had finished. The ol' skool Screw Couplers preclude this train from running anywhere on the Metro network due to OH&S concerns so they are being road freighted to Newport to go on display at the upcoming Steamrail open days.

Probably not the right place but you guys will know and hardly worth a new forum.

What happened to the goods train that used to run up the Bendigo line usually hauled by a nice mix of borrowed locos from steamrail and the very nice Alfred Deakin (S 313)? I used to see it almost every day at Castlemaine around about 8am.
  Greensleeves Chief Commissioner

Location: If it isn't obvious by now, it should be.

Runs via Seymour and Toolamba on the way up now, but the return to Melbourne runs via Bendigo. It usually runs Mondays-Wednesdays-Fridays, but can alter depending on what the mill want.

Here's a video of Thursday's run:

Just noticed a photo on VICSIG of a wagon transfer to North Geelong via Wyndham Vale. Have non-passenger movements over the RRL been commonplace since its opening?

I think the aussiebbq post referred to the train on it's way to Tocumwal. Down Qube through Mooroopna a bit before 09 00 this morning. Nothing for Mooroopna.
