The National party is keeping pressure on the Victorian Government to standardise the rail network, despite a major grain freight company moving to ease pressure on the system.
The Australian Wheat Board is doubling its grain train fleet in Victoria by commissioning 90 extra wagons to come into service early next year to move this year's big grain harvest.
The wagons are broad-gauge, and the Nationals' Peter Walsh says the pressure is now back on the Victorian Government to finish standardising the network.
"The best news we could ever have on the eastern seaboard would be if we had the whole freight system standardised so the train sets could move very easily between states and industry sectors," he said.
"They could come off coal, go to grain, go from grain back to coal or whatever."
