Some action overnight with 7902 failing on the UP side of Maryborough with an 81 sent to assist the train out of Maryborough. Yesterday's 7902 only had 2 x XR's on the train leaving Maryborough. G540 had failed and was removed at Maryborough. This caused today's 7901V to be 10 hours late.

4AM5 this morning crossed a seven hour late down Mildura fruit train at Gheringhap. AM5 with NR29+AN11+NR111+NR46 and 7901V with XR559+BL31+BL32. 1/10/2020.

G540 had been stabled in Donald with 7907/8 during the week.   Might have been a failure earlier on.   Did they put it in 7902 to get it closer to wherever to get repaired?

G540 has not come through Gheringhap this week.  Went north with XR558 and XR559 on 7901 late Monday evening and only the XR's returned.  Could be in Maryborough Yard.

Overall, seems to be a sharp decline in sightings this week? Only a few SG grain trains have run and no BG so far.
