Aurizon transferred a previously stored grain set from Acacia Ridge to Willowburn (Toowoomba) yesterday in apparent preparations to haul grain off the South Western Line.
Although Aurizon lost its GrainCorp contract to Watco at the end of 2019, it has retained contracts with other grain groups, including CHS Broadbent, although the poor 2020 season saw no grain transported for these contracts.
Social media groups are indicating grain will be hauled from Daymar, eight kilometres east of Thallon. Aurizon has previously loaded grain directly from ground to the mainline at this site, which is connected via rural roads to the St George region to the north, and Mungindi and Weemelah in north western NSW. So far the majority of this season's grain crop has been coming off the South Western Line.
This grain set has had a remarkable journey already this year, after being recovered from storage in MVR's Monkland yard by C17 974 on March 1st, before the 600-tonne rake was hauled by EE 1632 up to the Gympie yard while being banked by the C17. Yesterday's journey was slightly less out of the ordinary with a pair of Aurizon 2300s providing the power.
