Interesting stuff as usual GoG, thank you.

Still a pretty hefty increase over last year, if the Overland was still running how many sightings would that add to this years total I wonder?

Reckon you would be close to 1000 sighting up on last year if they were included

The overland accounts for four trains a week. But this time last year the grain season was building up and now we are getting less weekly sighting than this time last year. We were 10 sightings down this week.

Would be expecting this years harvest to start in 4-6 weeks, maybe a little later. When you start seeing PN running BG grain trains again, that's when you know this years harvest is on the go.
