Great to see 12 services per day to the Port of Burnie is this an uplift on the  usual traffic volumes?

Also most importantly highlights the value and the simplicity and safety of using industrial sidings for access to the network.  We need to see more of this.

Sounds good 'on paper'!
12 services per week (not day).
Is it 6 return services or 12 return services?
How many TEU day/week (whatever)?
Meaningless uninformative spin.

Thanks 12CSVT.
Just trying to work out if this is actually an increase in rail freight or just spin?

Just an empty puff piece, it's the same service that has been running since the late 90s. Been 32 wagons for a fair while now, but at times more or less depending on the mill's output. Once upon a time it was somewhat of a sacred cow, wasn't to be held up under any circumstances and no other freight was to be carried on it.

Why am I not surprised? Rolling Eyes
I was going to say 'fake news' but not really news at all.

It is a poor shadow of what used to go in & out of Boyer. As well as the paper to Burnie, there used to be additional services to Bell Bay and a whole other train just for the pine & coal. Pacific National chucked away the pine, because "they didn't have enough locos & rolling stock" (whilst hundreds of wagons and dozens of locos sat dumped in the various rotten rows dotted about the north of the state). They also completely lost the coal. The coal has partly come back, though still supplemented by truck, whilst the pine is still delivered by convoys of trucks in and out of the mill every day.

We thought Australian National were crap, but their freight loadings were dozens of times what the pathetic dribble of tonnage is now days. Sales and Marketing seem to be just a sign on the door at Meerkat Manor. (Tasrail HQ).

'... Meerkat Manor ...' I like it. LaughingLaughingReminds me of the old 'Gumtree'* here in Victoria.
