This picture, is looking roughly in a southeastern direction, you've got a nice line up of trucks, probably heading to the weigh bridge, you can see the main western line, on the trucks right and over the row of trees, is the western highway.

Ps; seems GrainFlow ( dimboola ), are going to squeeze another week, out of there site, so they must still be getting a nice flow of inward grain.
