crossed 6wp2 at about 1550hrs at stewart and it had about a dozen railcorp ballast wagons on the back of it.
You weren't on 3415 loaded ore were you? I was on 1MP9 following 6WP2.
PM5 today was hauled by NR5/NR41 and was completely empty.
there are also some wagons stored in the engineers siding at parkeston.PM5 today was hauled by NR5/NR41 and was completely empty.
Probably the annual Xmas run to Rawlinna.
Due to space constrains at Kewdale, every Xmas PN run a full set of wagons to Rawlinna to stable them until after New Year.
Basically, there is nowhere closer to hold a long rake of wagons. WestNet charge for storage by the hour, and the first siding on the Trans long enough is the Rawlinna mine spur (Approx 3.5km long)
Good to see the NRs back working on the South West Panel , ie getting turned at Cockburn Jctn.
