Don't know what it is now but #100 was always the Broken Hill to Port Pirie ore train back in the days.
Could be anything now for all I know so open to correction.

1) Train timetables are kept by ARTC. A quick glance reveals when it runs

2) Running from Bemax Siding, this train services the Cristal Mining organisation on the outskirts of Broken Hill.

Thanks seb2351.
Thankfully I put the 'could be anything these days' proviso in.
I was reliving the 'good old days' obviously. Smile

Thanks to all regarding the feedback.

Are there many mineral trains or similar running into Port Pirie these days?

Without trying to contradict you, from my memory of working on the Peterborough Division in 75/76 100/101 was a general goods, 500/501 was the ore train, 700/701 was also a goods train while  250/251, 550/551 and 650/651 were the reverse movements of these trains. These ran 6 days a week apart from 500/501  550/551 which were 7 day operations. There were a number of other trains depending on traffic which were run or cancelled as traffic demanded.

101 usually left Peterborough about  2 in the afternoon, 501 was about 9:30pm and 701 about 1:30am as I recall.

250 would arrive between 12:30 and 2:30 and leave about 4:pm after a loco change, 550 about 8:30pm and 650 about 11pm
Indian Pacific locos  256/257 and 456/457 would also go through between Pt Pirie and Broken Hill.

Cheers
