Last month a large hardstand area was provided at Hamilton yard. There have been rumours that logs will be railed out from the site. Does anyone have any further information?

It was still being worked on last week. I think it's too small for log but I'll keep an eye on the Hamilton paper.

It could be Transvolution. The following quote is from the Transvolution website.


"TransVolution has successfully established a first train service which is set to commence in November 2016 from a newly developed freight terminal."

Lanyon's Real Estate Hamilton is running an on-line advertisement looking for a Lessor to operate the Hamilton Rail Terminal from VICTRACK. A Terminal Operator Requirements document is attached to the ad.

As there now appears to be a physical terminal ready to go, a customer and a rail provider, this may be the final step in getting a log/container terminal operating from Hamilton. If a terminal operator can be found, it is likely to take several months to complete the leasing process.

Gemco are reactivating L 377 and  1872 at this time, maybe a coincidence.

Funny thing, there's been no details in the  Hamilton paper. Usually they're all over that sort of thing.

If you are referring to this link, it's actually from August last year. Qube secured a lease option over the site which has since well and truly lapsed.

Australian Locolease owned L277 and 1872 (along with 1873). Ian Moore and his father, Paul Moore (of Great Northern Rail Service), are behind the company.

To complete the picture for those following, Paul and Ian Moore were behind Great Northern with Ray Evans (El Zorro).

Hamilton community left in the dark over transfer hubBY SPECTATOR-OBSERVER PARTNERSHIP · DEC 27, 2016

HAMILTON people will head into the New Year just as clouded on the details of a major project in its midst as they have been for several months.
No official detail has come from the state government over those months on the project taking place in the freight receival environs of Hamilton Railway Station.
A large area surrounding the rail tracks has been surfaced and rolled with many truckloads of crushed rock brought into the area.
A weighbridge has been constructed and a new entrance formed on the exit/entrance facing Mt Napier Rd.
About six weeks ago, a spokesman for the owners of the tracks, VicTrack, said an announcement from the state government was imminent.
This week the same spokesman said, when asked about an announcement, “there is nothing to add. There will be news in the new year.”
Anecdotally, the project will be a transfer hub for district logs brought in by road truck and transferred to rail carriages. The destination remains unknown, but likely to be Portland and/or Geelong.

Still no movements and vic track now slowing the information flow. Rumour not enough sidings in the yard. Vic track had already made a mess of the yard  with track removals. PN need 2 road clear for the mineral sands. Leaves only one road for splitting and loading.
