Last report from Katherine, as we head south again early Saturday morning.
GWA004/CLP14 on 3AD1 in the freight loop, with the tail of the train stretching back into the platform road.
GM47 in the same position as Thursday, with one empty CQXY. The remaining wagons had obviously departed south on 4DA2 behind VL353/FQ03.
The second container loading forklift has been repaired and is now back in the freight terminal. Earthworks for the extra hard-standing area within the terminal appear to be complete.
A canvas shelter over a cleared area of ground has now been erected adjacent to the freight terminal approach road, giving the road train drivers a bit of shade should they elelct to leave their cabs.
A couple of blokes from MacMahon were checking into our resort this evening, and have been booked in for at least two weeks. They were not hopeful of being away from here even then. The place has about three-quarters of its rooms booked out to G&W people and workers from the assorted contractors. Given that the Wet is usually slow for accommodation providers it's been a bit of a bonanza.
