Haven't heard any trains yet today, might be having a day off like I am, too wet, cold and windy to go out walking.

It's XR558.  Too wet to get down there this morning, only made it to Bentinck Street for a few ship photos.
Looks like X48 staying for another night so might get a few photos in the morning.

8161 and others in today. They're down the far end of the wharf at the moment. I'll grab them later.

Edit - 8161, BL27, and XR558. X48 is looking very lonely on a side road.

Today's train derailed near the Julia Street crossing early this morning.  No one hurt and no grain on the ground.  Not going out for photos, prefer my trains upright and working.  According to most people involved it's minor but last time it happened it took a few days to get it on the rails again, not an easy place to get to.
Will update if I hear anything useful.

Maybe handy having the X sitting in the yard to assist in the re-railing.   If it still works!.

This what I've been told.

BL31, 8125 and 8160 all fell off the inner rail on the curve just south of the Julia St crossing. They hope to be able to jack and pack them back on later this afternoon. Getting a crane in would be problematic.

BL31 and 8125 will go forward into the yard, and 8160 will push the load back off the crossing. The rail will be checked and a crew will carry out repairs Monday. Replace some sleepers at least.
