The Sea lake, Manangatang, Murrayville and Mildura rail lines are in the best condition they have been in the last 35 years.
In my opinion as a Locomotive Driver the Mildura rail corridor from Maryborough is in the best condition it has been in the last 15 years and could easily see an N Class and N set carriage set returned tomorrow for passenger services as heavier type locomotives such as the G and BL class are regularly hauling 1200 meter long trains along the corridor of export freight.
Full credit to those involved advocating for the continual up keep of these lines and the men and woman working on them.
Continual advocacy will still need to happen for lost rail infrastructure such as at Maryborough.
But slowly the department is listening with modern signalling, sleepers and rail infrastructure being put back at places such as Donald.
Again credit to this group.
It’s time Mildura got its passenger train back and Maryborough its freight Yard and associated locomotive fueling facilities for passenger and freight trains.
