What wagons @bevans?  And any destination?  Bulk or containerised grain are my bets, though loading containers at Coolamon im not sure is possible.

Appleton takes containers from the MC/CM PN services no?  So could be that too.  Didn't know that QUBE did that much in bulk grains?
  M636C Minister for Railways

Last time I saw them (in Goulburn a couple of weeks ago) the two QUBE RLs were running the Alstom Ballarat built rake of CQDY grain wagons....

Since these are very like the former VR grain wagons they'd be suitable for Appleton Dock.

Qube working through Albion with GML10-VL353-VL354 onto the North East line.  Are these newly acquired grain wagons?

Qube working through Albion with GML10-VL353-VL354 onto the North East line.  Are these newly acquired grain wagons?

bevans
Yes.

All 42 of them, I think.

The train was in Goulburn Workshops with the two VLs on Monday about 1530.

I assume they picked up the GML in Victoria, since it can't run in NSW.

Ive seen GML in Albury yards, is it allowed there?

And why is it not allowed, if you can educate me?
  hbedriver Chief Train Controller

Understand GML 10 not accredited to run in NSW (apart from Albury being OK for changeover). Similarly, the MZ/1400 and the 1100 classes are not allowed into Victoria. RL's, VL's, billycarts, etc all OK for through running, hence their usual train seems to have a pair of RL plus the GML in Vic exchanging with something from NSW at Albury. Seen the locos laying over from time to time near the old Station Box. it is almost like back in 1962 when YOUR locos were not allowed on MY railway!

G515 (CFCLA) ran l.e from Shepparton to Tocumwal on Sunday. Rumour that it was for Qube driver training.

This loco has not been seen on the Railcam network for approximately a month.

Could Qube be planning to base a crew out of Shepparton?
  emmastreet Train Controller

Location: Goulburn Valley
I gather that the loco arrived in Shepp on Saturday and stabled overnight. Maybe Qube are looking at taking over from PN on the Tocumwal freight or starting their own service.

El zorro when they were running had a tocumwal service via Shepparton on the alternate. The service ran on the down as the on service tan on the up. This el zorro service was fully subscribed as was the on service.PN despite customer demand never provided more capacity.

Will the Bendigo/Sunbury line be closed for a period of time for level crossing removal works? QUBE might require driver training on that line as a work around?

That shouldn't matter to much as half the time the Deni train goes via Seymour and Echuca rather then Sunbury and Bendigo ?
