Apparently there is mention on Facebook of a derailment at Koomi (between Blaxland and Bowenville). With today's maximum temperature in Dalby being 42°C, my money is on a heat buckle...

PN003 with a fifteen platform 82P9 heading north at Calen at 10.12. The train had earlier detached loading at Rockhampton and Mackay. As evidence for how fast the North Coast Line is compared to the Bruce Highway north of Mackay, the train overtook me while I was driving through the Proserpine 60km zones, I overtook it at Longford Creek and then it overtook me while I was traveling in a long line of parallel highway traffic travelling at 95km/h. The train remained ahead of me until it finally had to slow for the yards at Merinda nearly thirty kilometres further north.

It met 2832 at Wilmington with an early season loaded cattle train off the Mt Isa line at around 12.15pm and then 2801/2843 with a three wagon 8844 at Guthalungra at around 12.30pm. The two Aurizon freights were running only a section apart. 8844 will attach additional export container loading at Mackay and possibly Rockhampton.

Saw a NGR today about 4pm heading north over the Coomera River bridge on the Gold Coast line.  No photos as I was driving at the time.

I've been away from home in Brisbane and northern NSW the past couple of weeks. On my way home this afternoon I noticed that a lengthy stretch of the Western line between Oakey and Jondaryan has just had a 100% resleepering with new concrete sleepers. Ballast was being installed as I passed. Ballast wagons in the Acland coal siding, did not see the loco(s).

Seen today. Oakey station is being repainted externally. The timber walls are a chocolate brown rather than the previous creamy  off-white. The roof was being washed today for painting tomorrow. The timber fence is getting the same colour, an off-white.

Empty Aurizon coalie at Raglan with three 3700/3800s.

The empty East End Aurizon VLH limestone set is in Gladstone yard for some reason. Pacific National 8301 in the yard as well, plus an old Aurizon 80-tonne coal set (I thought they were all gone).
