I am aware GoG has mentioned this in our conversations but sharing wider.  SCT MP/PM trains are now over 80 wagons (I remember when they were running over 70) how much further can they grow?

As above we have seen stalls in the Adelaide Hills and we have seen extra's running.

SCT trains have also been running late recently.

Is it time SCT reduced the train size a little and started additional services?

1800m is the max (usual) train length Adelaide - Melbourne as you know. A factor of the length of the longest passing loops on the line. not sure artc would be keen on having them any longer on a regular basis. would make pathing a pain in the rear, with all shorter trains needing to be put away so the longer one can pass.

C501 on its way to Perth with SCT.  That would be a long time since a C has been to Perth?
