When did this supposed test run take place if in fact it actually did?  Would think a lot specialized wagons fitted with some form cradles would also be needed for the amount of curved sections that will be required for this project.  Media beat up more likely scenario .

What would the locos have been as we can look into the database at Bunbury.

First train hasent even run, wagons havent been delivered yet. In addition to the tunnel not started to be dug yet so only a trickle of panels needs to make its way down in preperation.

I could understand that as the sightings from Bunbury Street show no concrete panels into Dynon on the SG.  There are however several light engine movements from North Dynon to the North East Line and return.  Driver training?

Imagine what the concrete might have felt given the following release from the union regarding the ride of the track to Albury:

Indeed. Some sections of that track make even a ride on the Rosstown Railway a more attractive option.

Has any further progess been made on the utilisation of the two additional sidings which have been added at Benalla?

When can concrete traffic southbound be expected to commence?

Bevans. When you were younger, did you always ask, are we there yet?

Yes. Smile

It would appear from today's update on the West Gate Tunnel Project website that tunnelling hasn't commenced yet. (Delayed by contaminated soil?). The video shows some panels on site at Maribyrnong already.

There Is a massive stockpile of finished panels at the Benalla plant.

The rail siding at Benalla looks to be In It's own separate pen (fenced off from the rest of the facility, without a hard stand) with ground level crane rails In place, but no overhead crane spanning the siding.

Given the soil issues at the West Gate Tunnel Project, presumably this is on hold?

Panels were being stacked along the plant side of the siding fence when we went past this morning with a large mobile crane doing the stacking. I've also heard rumours of a train planned in the not to distant future.

Great news.  Can't wait to see the start of the traffic.  Will this be Qube's work?
