TL154, TL155 and L277.
  pheonics The Gardener

Location: Meal room with a hot cuppa
Y168 & four container flats (with 3 x 40foot containers) heading through Congupna at 17:08 toward Shepparton
"LEGEND711"


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?
"VRfan"


 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. 
"LEGEND711"


Tonight's train would have been #9306 UP PN Tocumwal with X49, P22, A78 & A71.

Location: FL390
It seems this mornings 9071 POTA service to Deni got off to false start, apparently blocked by a late finishing occupation north of Sydenham. I understand the train was diverted to Somerton? to stable before returning back to North Dynon during the early afternoon with a B-S-T-T-T combo.

Supposedly they need to run with less fuel to keep the weight down. More on the subject here:

I heard a rumor that a DL might appear on a Grainy due to PN R&B having more work than they (locos and crew) can handle.
