Sorry i must have had my days mixed up. Some time after the SSR consist left early Friday, sections of track have been removed between the mainline turnouts and the yard in this location. Roughly a 5 - 10 metre gap I think. This is at both mainline connections. My guess is they may be installing catchpoints.
Seen from a Gippsland bound train.
Are catch points still used on modern rail projects in Vic? I thought that they had been ditched in favour of stub sidings like the one at the new(ish) Calder Park stabling yard.
Siding away from the main line with a short run and then baulk / ballast mound, road it set for the siding at all times unless a movement to/from the stabling yard is taking place thus removing the chance of a rollaway / SPAD move making it to the main.
