Graham if you were to separate the growth on train numbers over the past year into grain and non grain would you have recorded any growth in non grain traffic ?

Is that a Dorothy Dixer Freightgate?!?!

Growth year on year total is 978

Of these 933 are Grainies.

So non-grain growth is 45 for the year to date or 1 per week approx.

Bugger all in the grand scheme of things.

Actually that is a terrible outcome for rail.

How does one train per week compare in volume of tonnes against overall sector growth?

There are only three timetabled trains on the B/G each week, not counting grain the only other trains are Diverted Mildura fruit trains, light locos and EMU transfers with a few passenger specials.
