Probably rail cleaning (not sure of the correct term) and testing upgraded tracks. The line hasn't had trains in two and a half weeks so they run a test train before the first passenger train runs.

Certainly unusual as the H cars are normally made up into 9  fixed six car consists with one spare loose car .

I spotted them on the up through Parwan on Saturday afternoon. I assumed it was for rail cleaning/ track circuit testing. It wasn't exactly flying through the crossings.

Many of these sets are 2x3-car sets coupled together.

This set has been stabled at Kyneton for the entire shutdown to be used for track cleaning during that period. It was replaced by a velocity ready for trains to go back to normal running
