BG sightings well up on last week and will continue to occur since the delays now being experienced in SG conversion north of Maryborough.

I'm looking for a rural location outside of Melbourne with a crossing where there would be frequent freight trains running on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Can you give me advise?

It all depends on what you want to see?

How far out of Melbourne are you willing to move?

Do you like the Internet?

Most action happens overnight unless something is running late. Of course, during Daylight Savings you can get lucky and see some action.

As close to Melbourne as possible but a rural setting, with as many freight trains as possible to see during daylight hours not night time.

The closest place to Melbourne that would match your criteria and where you are going to see the greatest number of freight trains during daylight would most likely be either Great Western or maybe Heathcote Junction. As you know most action happens overnight unless something is running late.

I'll repeat my previous question. "Do you like the Internet?" You might think that this is a silly question, but I know people who live within 25km of the CBD of Melbourne and their internet is slow and they struggle to get 2.0Mbps download and that is with NBN. If you look at places like Batesford or Gheringhap, or even Bannockburn, they will be/are on Fixed Wireless NBN and they hate it as it is slower than what they had when they Broadband, plus they are facing constant shaping/limiting during peak usage times.
