That is quite a long train.

From what area of the port does this train commence ?

It is my understanding that this is regular as there is product required that moves north from Melbourne for Visy.  Stand to be corrected.
Its regular until Feb/March at this stage whilst upgrading works are happening at Minto in Sydney. Its running down there 6 days a week at the moment.

Diverging slightly off-topic, but can you point me at some details of what is happening in at Minto? I travel past it on my daily commute and haven't seen any signs of construction equipment.  Traffic is definitely growing out of that little siding there with both the intermodal and Hops processing plant, so I can see the need for additional capacity.

I could be mistaken. Just saw them through gheringhap loop camera. Assumed they unloaded there.

The locos were all hanging around North Dynon last evening - it was a sea of Royal Blue and Gold! ???? Rake was at Tottenham stowed next to one of the PN rakes.

North Dynon looked pretty bare and no Aurizon motive power save for the yard shunter.

Caught the 08.48 from Castlemaine to Bendigo this am. The Rice train with G, B, S class locos was stabled in Bendigo yard on the Up at around 9.15am. Is this normal, was it awaiting a path or was it a fail last night?

It was a late runner out of Melbourne yesterday morning.  It went through Bendigo on the Down at 2pm, and returned into the yard around 3:30am this morning from Deni.  Possibly ran out of crew hours or was put away due to the risk of running into Sunbury peak hour...

Thanks Carnot. She was still there at 6pm when we headed home. Presuming they would have run again today that is an expensive day out.

Any reason that they are running both ways via The Go again? Problems with the Toolamba path?

Just realized that due to Metro night track work there would have been no path avl in the early am which makes the question of why not running via Toolamba even more relevant.

Depends if they can get a signaller or path at the time.

Qube have been contracted by MetroTrains Melb to haul ballast trains from Rochester siding to various locations in Melbourne.

CFCLA T-class locos T373, T376, and T377 have been hired by Qube with CHOY hoppers to haul the rocks.  First train loaded yesterday and it'll return tonight for another.

QUBE keeping busy!
Any word on where and if the Grain train has been running the past few weeks? Haven't seen it around lately.
