No I don't think so, they don't need four locos on an empty grain train. I am told it will head to Melbourne later tonight.

Sorry, I was not available when the trains went past. I need to be sat at the computer and do a screen shot of each train.

This refueling at Gheringhap looks cumbersome why is it being done and why can’t trains be refuelled  at the depots they pass through ?
