Victoria, 3-10 to 8-10-2004
This weeks sightings are down by five trains to 93 sightings, that makes the total for the year to date at 5522 (last years sightings on day 326 was 3777).
There was only 12 sightings on the B/G for the week and we did not have any
visits from the Mildura 9140 trains. We did get an EMU transfer from
Ballarat workshops which was reported as the last new EMU transfer from the
shops, the train was on the up on Tuesday with P19 and two 3 car EMU's. The
biggest lash ups on the B/G this week was two up grain trains with four
locos, Sunday's train had, G514+T374+XR554+X35 and Tuesday's train had,
On The S/G we saw 17 DL sightings with 11 of them being on the Patrick's
trains. We saw 8 AN class locos and had seven sightings of 81 class locos,
with 8102 & 8118 being the identifiable locos. V544 was seen on two SCT
We have seen three extra trains, an up SCT on Sunday, a down SCT on Monday
and up PN s/frt. on Friday.
For some reason last Sunday's Overland didn't run into Melbourne, and I
don't think tonight's Overland will run due to the derailment of MP5 in the
Adelaide hills this morning.
On Monday morning we had a visit from the Ozback tourist train with NR92 on
it's return to the East.
On Wednesday morning we had our first visit from rebuilt X555 in it's new
PacNat livery on 9791 and it had a Y class in tow which was reported to be
169? XR555 returned the next day on 9792.
Wednesday's PW4 up steel train included three, what looked like ballast
wagons, of a type I can not remember seeing before.
