I'm guessing convert A66 to Sg, fit P13 with ICE radios or use an already ICE fitted loco. Though my money's on A66 being converted because they'd be testing SG now otherwise, unles it's already been tested. Anybody know if it has been?
  SN7 Chief Commissioner

V/Line already uses ICE radio on SG, locos N 464 and N 473 have had it fitted,  P 13 has had it for at least 8 months, N 463 is the next one to have it retrofitted, which requires moving the speedo , once that is done N 453 will be returned to Broad Gauge. There is no chance of A 66 being placed on SG,  it is doing all the BG testing, then will return to the spare loco replacing A 70 as standby, when there is an N class loco shortage.

As mentioned in another thread, there were delay's on the Western SG with MP1 having a wagon jump off track around Lubeck. That then caused a backlog of trains and I've captured some of the late movements at Dooen and Murtoa

Container train in the west swanston dock terminal on Saturday arvo with CFLCA loco at its head . Is it a one off or is regular container traffic on again. PN has used the sidings for temporary storage at times but never into the terminal itself

The dock line was used a few months ago by SCT for Horsham container traffic. T400 was one of the locos. Check bunbury street railcam as this is where I saw it earlier this year.

It was G515 with the Qube Deniliquin freight, the Maryvale freight also uses Swanson Dock about once a week, usually Wed night / Thu morning.

Due to last night's incident at Galvin, last night's up Warrnambool freight was held in North Geelong, then diverted today via Ballarat. Here it is seen with G531 at the front storming through Parwan loop.

G532-VL362 on the down Maryvale papertrain this morning through Longwarry at 5:15am. I did start taking a video as i was going for my train as it came into the station, Then the train stopped so i stopped recording, I will not post the video i do have as this train was involved in a fatality just outside of Longwarry this morning, hence the stopping.

Hi all,

It hasn't happened yet but according to sources A66 will run the down morning 0932 Shep pass and return on the lunchtime from Shep due to ICE radio testing. This will occur tomorrow (wed) and Thursday.

No worries about the A class on the Shep then. My text message has it running tomorrow.

Noted VL 39 has had a new coupler fitted to the east end and was running the 1842 Seymour tonight. Ex the Altona collision.

Having not had a lot of access to RP over the last week, what is the purpose of this train?  Is this a new service or replacement service?

A transfer movement from Adelaide to NSW via Melbourne though I'm not sure if it's for a new service up there or so CFCLA can have some of their assets in one place in Golburne, someone else would probably know more (and I can't for the life of me remember how to spell 'Golbourne' today so I'm open for correction there).
