I seen the Elzorro BG grain pass through Ballarat station around 10 - 1030 last night (Saturday), however Gheringhap Loop website has it through at 0904 this morning?! Did it stable for 10hrs somewhere between Ballarat and Gheringhap or is the Gheringhap time wrong? Around 10hrs between Ballarat and Gheringhap is a long and slow journey.

I'm amazed the train is even running with such a small load! Does anyone know if this train is still running 3 days per week?

Is this for the Deni rice mill traffic (with the Sunbury shutdown) or something else?

 I  saw it Thursday only, I was two cars back from the Crossing and Y168 was really making a noise, like working hard and this evenings train has gone through (about 17:10pm) I'm about 350 metres away from the line and it didn't sound like a Y, sounded more like the usual 'double headed rumble' heading on down. Trains now coming through here at all odd hours, so it's a bit difficult to lay in wait for hours to see what they are.
