From the Mount Lofty Photos it appears the train stopped at Mount Lofty and then was followed closely by a Hi-rail machine and a ute. Possibly unloading just east of Mount Lofty?

I'm not from SA but know that Keith and several others were also loading last season.   Depending on shipping and other requirements, GWA operates from time to time further east towards Victoria.

Track works continued throughout yesterday with the track machines parking in 2 road overnight.  They had moved onto the next section of work once the 2 freights had cleared.
