Thanks Graham.

Interesting to note how quiet the grain traffic especially on BG has died down the past two weeks. Id expect it to be firing in the next few weeks.

If there is still such a thing as the "normal" cycle for grain, there is always a lull between the clear out of last year's harvest and the preparation for the new harvest.  Tradiuonally a lot of maintenance upgrades and fumigation etc is undertaken.  In addition there has been some wet weather in Westrn and northern Victoria that will have disrupted things.

Plus lots of activity in Portland last week which obviously doesn't travel via G Loop.
