Gheringhap Sightings w/e 13/6/2015
Victoria, 3-10 to 8-10-2004
Another drop in the number of sightings this week with 92 trains, which is
13 sightings down on last week. The total number of sightings for the year
to date is 5239 (we had 3603 up to day 311 in 2003). A few trains may have
been missing due to the Melbourne Cup holiday in Melbourne on Tuesday?
On the B/G we only saw eleven trains for the week, one of them being the up
mixed goods from Mildura (9140). The biggest lash ups for the week was two
trains with four locos, 9121 on Thursday went out with
G524+X35+X33+T395(SRV) and an up grain on Friday had G514+X39+X33+T395(SRV).
Another nice lash up was on Wednesday's 9123 with P22+T364. Thursday's 9123
went out with no grain hoppers and had X39 long end leading with only five
container and oil wagons.
On the S/G we saw 18 DL locos with 12 of them being on the Patrick's trains.
We saw 13 AN locos and V544 was seen on all four 9791 & 9792 trains again
this week, Saturday's 9792 came in with V544+Y151?+G537? and Wednesday
mornings 9791 had X+V544.
On Saturday night the down SCT went out with five G class locos. We have
seen two extra trains on the S/G this week with an extra up SCT on Sunday
and an extra up PacNat freight on Friday.
We have not seen any S/G grain trains this week.
Tuesday nights MP5 went out with BL35 in PN livery behind two NR's, this
train also included 13 trailerails as MP7 had been cancelled.
On Saturday AM3 and AB6 had problem with signals and points at the up end of
the S/G loop at Gheringhap and both trains had to be issued with caution
orders, AB6 ended up sitting in the loop for two hours and eighteen minutes.
