New Wodonga station,
Still plenty of workers running around the place.
Building now looks to be complete, it appears a good bit of fiiting out has been done inside, including what looks to be a TV aerial on the roof.
Platform has not been surfaced and the fence is not complete but a shelter of some sort has been built towards the Albury end of the platform and the light stands have been erected.
The car park looks to be nearly complete including planting. Some landscapeing was still going on. The bus lane and bay area looks as though it still needs surfacing but this is within the building work area at this stage.
The West line platform has been given a new surface and has had that yellow and red plastic matting put on it.
The East line on the level crossing just up of the station was being worked on today. The track had been lifted and all the ballast removed, new ballast put in and new rail. I can only assume this level crossing did not have 60Kg rail on it.
The concrete bases for the new signals have been dropped off at least to as far as Springhurst. Work was under way installing these at two sites near Glenrowan. First just south of the town at the start of the loop second was near the level crossing Benalla side.
At Benalla all signals and it appears all the wiring including track circuit has been done. All that appears to be needed is the equipment cabins/ cabinets for the switching.
West line level crossings,
It appears commissioning of theses was being done in the Benalla area today. In the morning all five crossings were maned and the loco 8122 was making runs both ways through them. This afternoon the same thing was being done at the crossing Benalla side of Glenrowan. 8122 had a driver both ends and took no time to change direction unfortunately by the time I got into position for a photo they had finished the testing. Murphy strikes again.
East line track repair,
This is going on through out the length of the track from Broadmedows to at least Barnawatha. It appears the track is being closely monitored and the worst areas are being done as earlly as possible. A team was at work just south of Chiltern. So far I have seen four separate teams at work.
