One of the more telling numbers of increased grain activity.  If you took grain out of the stats then traffic I believe would be down again.

Nope. Total sightings up 608. Grain sightings up 560. So non-grain sightings up 48. And that is with 4 x Overland services missing for the last 6 months or thereabouts

Interesting BG thanks.  With covid and also the trucking restrictions lifted I thought may have had an impact.  Glad it has not.

I wish we had this service on the northeast. Would there even be 100 trains a week now between Sydney and Melbourne ?
