Yes but should it be there in the Victorian Grain Harvest thread? Isn't it loading in SA and heading to NSW via Broken Hill?

Not my fault - I was on night shift that week.Smile

Perhaps there should be forum 'Interstate grain/minerals'.

I think this one warrants its own given the size and the interesting routing.

Well it's got another one now, just started in the Operators section. We could have a new RP record by the time the night is done

But so far as I'm aware, we can't merge threads under the current forum architecture. Splitting, yes, but not merging.

About time another operator came into south Australia to put GWA under some pressure. Not sure they are a forward thinking operator.

May be vittera is the supplier ?

Narp, SSR are carting Feedstock for GrainFlow. PN have also recently run a couple of Feedstock trains out of GrainFlow, Crystal Brook, as well as Western Victoria.

Also, Viterra and G.W.A. have been at loggerheads for a while now about Viterra's lack of forward thinking. G.W.A. have wanted Viterra to sign longer haulage contracts in areas such as the Lower Eyre Peninsula so that they (G.W.A.) can then go to their financiers to ask for money to purchase new Motive Power and Rollingstock as well as upgrade the system, but Viterra refuse to sign contracts longer than a season at a time.

Hmm.  I thought I saw a thread merger at some stage in the past.  I cant point to it now though of course.  @bevans is it possible?

Manually copy the posts (or quotes of the posts, if copying posts into different threads is not possible with this forum at present) into the main thread, post a link to the main thread on each of the others before locking them.

Posts have an individual identification number, so it should be possible to update the forum to allow them to be shifted into a different thread.

SSR is contracted by Arrow Commodities for this move, not Grainflow.

Thank You for the clarification. I had been told that they were loading at GrainFlow for GrainFlow.
