All,



Apologies for the lengthy delay - busy time over the Christmas / New Year period.



For anyone following this thread, train sighting reports to the old Tasrail Yahoo Group has now ceased due to lack of use of that group. Hence, summaries, as listed here, of reports to that group will cease as well. All train sightings are now made to the Tasmanian Train Tracker Facebook group, which is fairly well used and contains regular sighting reports (and photos) from around the state by numerous correspondents.



For anyone still following these reports, thanks for your interest and I suggest referring to the Facebook Train Tracker site for ongoing reports.



So for the last time, sightings of train movements in southern Tasmania for November & December 2019 are as follows:

I'd consider following if it was a public group, but since they've locked it down so a non Facebook user can't see it, too bad I guess.
