Has any work been happening on this project?  Surely they could be working on Ararat to Maryborough??

Of course any low profile concrete sleepers would be gauge convertible wouldn't they!!

Lets keep in mind the big picture people. This is the Tocumwal line. It just so happens that passenger trains un ...

Noticed yesterday plenty of wooden sleepers still smouldering on the Tocumwal line in between Numurkah and Wunghnu.

Is this new service to Tocumwal more of Emerald Group's new services? Anyone know why all the grain from Tocumwal is loaded into containers? Is there no wagons available or is it a different export ma ...

If as comtrain says there will be $1.5 billion put on the table what is everyone's expectations/wish list of how this money is best spent?

I had a chance to drive from Oaklands to Yarrawonga yesterday. The Oaklands yard appeared almost finished although there was one track machine still there and a fairly big pile of sleepers still.

By conversion of the Shepparton Line are they meaning to just to Shepparton or all the way to Tocumwal. Surely they wouldnt leave Shepp to Tocumwal gauge stranded!!!!

This plan has been released via the DoT website

File is 3.6mb or 80 pages. Some interesting proposals for rail if it all comes off.

Marcus, in your album of Mildura Freight you have several shots of trains passing new concrete sleepers. Can you tell me what lines these are on, what upgrades are happening and whether they are BG or ...

Have the resleepering teams moved to resume work on the Mildura Line?

Posted 14 Feb 2009 10:57 in Victoria by Burkey

I hope these arent more non gauge convertable concrete sleepers are they!!

Surely they have learnt their lesson after the debacle that is RFR Mad

You're updates are great anyway, keep them coming!!

Some unanswered questions from the media releases:

If so will these tracks be ready for the coming harvest, say Decemb ...
