Well done to the contributors and thanks for taking the trouble to go out and get a few photos too.

BL30 and 8110 currently unloading at the port.

8163 and 8125 due in this afternoon (not confirmed yet).

As for times you just have to hang around and wait for the action.

8110 and BL30 are in town at the moment. It'll probably leave around 2.30 - 3.00, so I'd park in Canal Ct and go for a wander.

I don't believe there's a set timetable, so either keep an eye on Y115's posts or just have a look in the Port siding.

8163 and 8125 on their way to Portland now, probably arrive 12 - 1PM maybe.

Last time both trains were here the first one departed not long after the second arrived.

Like the photos.

How far beyond the unloader do the rails extend? I gather not far enough for an entire train.

Not much further than the yellow truck in the above photo.  They unload the train in three lots usually.
Definitely not enough room for a whole train.

Quote from Graincorp:  "Record broken at Portland! GrainCorp was proud to load a record 64,000 tonne canola vessel bound for Germany. This is the biggest cargo loaded on to one vessel in Port of Portland's history. The large export task required our road, rail and port teams to coordinate and work over the Easter long weekend to accumulate the required tonnage. Congratulations to all involved!"

I thought it was close to a record but wasn't sure.

Hi Group,

I saw a Video a Short While Back which I believe was the Main Line into Portland. Notice there were a Lot of New Cement Ties along the Right of Way.
I take it the Harbour Main Line is Being Up Graded for 21 Tonne Operations as Such. Not  sure who Produced the Video of Hand.

Tnx,
Operater.

There has been a large pile of cement sleepers in the harbour yard for the last few years, they replace old ones in times when there are no trains.
