2.15pm Katherine Station
AN2/NR109 3DA8 The Ghan awaiting arrival of passengers from Darwin.
FQ03/VL[obscured] in freight terminal refuelling from road tanker.
Work proceeding on expansion of hard standing within terminal area - lots of Suffren side-tip road trains bringing in fill.
Then a road trip to Edith River.
Large mobile crane working on the south bank. Many road trains sighted transporting rock and other fill to the site. GM47 adjacent to Edith Falls level crossing northside with CQXY wagons loaded with ore kibbles- more CQXYs south of the crossing.
Looks like the estimate of track restoration by the end of the month might not be over-ambitious.
Return to Katherine Yard about 3.45pm.
3DA8 awaiting the last coachloads from Darwin.
FQ03 and VL have disappeared. Gone north to retrieve some rollingstoc from Edith River?
