There are several locations on the Mallee where their grain comes from which will now be on Standard Gauge allowing access to SSR with their new rake providing the second operator onto the Mildura and Sealake lines.

Thanks BigShunter. I did suspect that 'Appleton Dock' was the origin, but always wise to check.

Is that facility wholly Emerald, or is it shared with other grain exporters?

Emerald is a 50% shareholder with sumotomo I believe.

It also allows QUBE to access those lines - so that would make it three operators.

But of course it has to make economic sense in the first place Razz

Yes it does and it is exciting.  In terms of the grain on the branch to Murryville when can we expect a train to this location and might SSR also consider this?

Does Aurizon Bulk have any SG grain sets at all?  Is there any SG grain stock that is not owned by the current players that is 'sitting around'?

Where would Aurizon be using SG wagons for grain not in NSW and not in Victoria?  South Australia unlikely leaving only Queensland for the possible use but that would be NG traffic?

The only real place I would think would be WA as yes, they would already be in use in NSW/Vic if they existed.

At the risk of going off topic, what is the utilisation of the NG Grain fleet in Queensland?

@8888 might be able to correct me if I am wrong, but Aurizon's only S/G Fleet of Grain Hoppers are the AGUYs, which use to be N/G XUs before being converted in 2016. I believe that the rest of S/G Hoppers have been scrapped.

The AGUYs are currently in use in Northern N.S.W.
