I know there has been talk recently of livestock trains, found myself at Caboolture KFC for lunch today (opposite the station) and saw an empty livestock train heading North. Didn't catch the loco number, but it was a Clyde product.

I see a new(ish) sign on the down approach to Tycanba. It says "Entering Wayside Detection Area" or similar. Can anyone provide a simple explanation please?

More than likely a site including hot bearing detector, hot wheel detector, dragging equipment detector.

If it is an Aurizon site, it could be one of the new "super sites", that have cameras taking photos of wheels, draw bars etc to check for damage.

4/05/16, at around 5pm, 2346 seen leading another loco West on an empty coal at Malu. Also seen, sadly, the station building at Malu has gone. Only a locked loo remains. I had hoped to record it's track-facing side in the late afternoon light.
