Hi guys,
Sorry if I post in the wrong section.
While sitting at Ballarat station awaiting the next Vlocity to Melbourne, I can see an N class (457 to be precise) idling away in the siding behind platform 2. Ballarat is a bit out of the normal way for an N, so does anyone have any suggestions why it is here?
Thank you.

Yeah, not something you see everyday unfortunately. Random fact, 457s last repaint was done in Ballarat.
