Looks as though the Stonie may have made two runs to Penrice yesterday (14.1.14).
Someone I know heard it heading through Rowland Flat at around 6 am, which puts it on track to reach Penrice at what was the usual time of before 7:30. This train must have been reasonably short though, as I went looking for it to take some photos and found that it had left before the typical return time (around 10:30), even though I was earlier than this anyway.
I was disappointed that i had missed the train as this was potentially the last stone train according to rumours posted in this thread.
However, I was in Tanunda at around 10:30 pm last night when the Stonie passed through, heading back to Adelaide with 704, 844 and 21 loaded hoppers.
Has anyone heard more about what is happening with this train?
