Last Monday 4/11/2013 I ventured out onto the north eastern line with word that 7BM7 was running very late and caught the following action along with the Aurizon lashup :

NR96-9304-9304 approaching Taylors and Sharps Rd level crossing(near Tallarook)

XR554-G539 approaching Seymour-Avenel Rd bridge on the approach to Seymour with 9306 PN Tocumwal freight

The one I was waiting for, LDP001-LDP008-6024-EL58 with 7BM7 Aurizon Superfreighter from Brisbane. This train followed the previous one by about 8 minutes at this spot. EL58 was being delivered to SCT, Laverton to cover the absence of the 'grounded' CSR class.




I then made my way to Broadford hoping to get another shot of the train. Not so, as they decided to hold it at Seymour for the evening V Line pass from Melbourne to pass. Onto Tallarook loop, it had the evening 8630 V Line pass from Albury, then 2MB7 followed by the Sydney bound XPT to contend with before proceeding onto Melbourne.
All in all, from the time I saw this train at 19:01 till it arrived into North Dynon shortly after 23:00, it took just over 4 hours.

As the light was getting weaker and weaker at Broadford while waiting for the BM7 to pass, I managed to get the following shots :

N463 8630 evening V Line pass from Albury about to pass under the Hamilton St bridge

The light had really deteriorated when LDP006-LDP003-LDP002 rolled through the same location with 2MB7 Aurizon Superfreighter to Brisbane. And it was at this point I decided to pull stumps. 7BM7 later crossed 2MB4 at Wallan.

This is a great shot.  I cannot recall if a Southern Spirit locomotive has previously worked the Sadleirs transfer?

9102 is running very late today.  Through Gheringhap at 13:58 dropping off the cement.  This train is usually into Gheringhap around the 7:30 - 8am slot.  Anyone know why it is running late today.

The train is yet to arrive into Melbourne.

Today's 9102 is lead into Melbourne by A78 with a portion of the loading account G539 failing en route.  The remainder of the loading is reportedly in Maryborough and we assume will be transferred to Melbourne Ports as soon as possible. G539 is reportedly also at Maryborough.

I forgot to come back to this thread and confirm A66 was on the 1656 into Melton station, crossing 2x Down Sprinters on Friday, 15/11/13. Hopefully it'll be back either in a fortnight or a month..

Will upload video sometime tonight. D

Also saw cheezy N457 on the Down with an N set passing over Ballarat Rd/Smithfield Rd at Newmarket station late on Sunday afternoon.

Was wandering around at work today waiting for the morning VGR service to arrive and was greeted with double J's.

J 515 was leading on the up service, while I got to watch the down service from home for lunch with J 549 leading.
