Interesting stuff, thanks Graham. So zero growth in Non-grain rail traffic through Gheringhap for 2017 over 2016.

Are there many stand out reasons for this or is it just a sign of the times I wonder?

T/O's are making longer train which means less of them. It will be even less in 2018 with the loss of all the QNR trains.

Have a safe New Year.
