Can anyone tell me  if any stone trains run out to Kilmore on Saturdays or Sundays, I am heading up that way so thought it might be worth dropping by the Quarry.

Cheers Peter.

In a word, Nope. No Apex's on the weekends.

Thanks for that, I ended up getting an hour by the distant signal at wallan saw a freight heading north so not bad.

Apart from the Hastings steel train are there any other PN freight trains running at the weekends.

C508-GL101 7MC1 QUBE freight to Harefield/Junee approaching Belair Rd bridge, Glenroy(pretty much around the corner from the Essendon Model Railway club in Glenroy, hence the reason why I tend to use this spot)

God that K looks bloody good. Steamrail did a great job on the weekend, especially with the presentation of their locos. Brilliant stuff!

Thanks speedemon08,
I will try and get out for that, I presume it runs a similar time to the week day train. About 4ish from Morwell.

While on the subject of freight trains, is there a website which has timings for all the freight in Vic most guys on here seem to know when trains are due and even whats on them. I don't get out much but when I do it would be nice to have some idea whats about.

Thanks Cheers Peter.

It actually departs 45 mins to an Hour earlier, so watch out. I rarely have ever been able to catch the service on a Sunday. Last time I saw it on a Sunday it was getting through Moe at 4pm.

Unless Metro are doing trackworks. Then I really don't know when it will run.
