What is the new training for new traffic?

Westmere has a very large grain area now with lots of loading if you look at



Bound for interstate?

I think (heard) that they plan using the 82's on grain trains.

8231 is still sitting in the siding at Gheringhap why?

8231 is being used for driver training runs. After runs it is stabled in the siding at Gheringhap. Training more Victorian drivers on using 82 class as leading locomotives I believe.

Expect to see more 82s up the pointy end in Victoria in coming years.

Will we see an 82 class on the Mildura line ?
  Gman_86 Chief Commissioner

Location: Melton, where the sparks dare not roam!
NR class locos were tested on the Mildura line recently, but were required to run with a lighter fuel load to meet the lines weight limits.

NR class locos have not been regular runners on the Mildura line since.

NR class locos and 82 class locos are both rated at 132 tonne.

You do the guesswork.
