Trackwork was noted being undertaken this afternoon on the former Ropes Creek Branch at St Marys, not so much for the proposed terminal but more for WH+S for train crews changing ends and sleeper replacement etc. for the current operations of the PN Rooty Hill Gravel train which I understand uses the former Ropes Creek Branch to change direction in order to access the terminal at Rooty Hill.
