CGDY 4023-M shunted off into a siding by itself. Been there for over a week now. I'm assuming it requires maintenance.

It's QUBE's spare wagon. 41 CGDY's came down, Customer requires 40 wagons.

Good to hear from you again LowndesJ515 it's been along time since you've posted in this part of the world.

RustyRick, if that's your wood heap, it's the biggest and neatest wood heap I've ever seen Razz

Would ( ha ha ) this be some of the timber that is being carted to Geelong, by Port Haul, or for export through Portland ?

Lol.. I wish. It's too wet for burning. I could do with some firewood though. Wink

That's one of the export stockpiles obviously adjacent to the rail. B-doubles bring in the logs where they are unloaded by a wheeled excavator type machine that has a cabin that rises so the operator can see the top of the stack. When a ship arrives, specialised off road trucks and trailers carry the logs to the wharf for loading. There's a bit of double handling.

There's some interesting goings on around the Port. I'll get a few pics and post them in the Lounge forum as they're not really rail related.

While the grain ships keep coming the trains will be here too, more than makes up for the months with no action.

QUBE grain departed about 2230 yesterday, they only have the two locos so not going to repeat numbers every time I post arrival or departure.
Another PN grain on the way, G520 and G540, should be here between 0700 and 0800.

For about two weeks then the train will probably be back.
