There have been several SG grain trains out of Birchip since the conversion, but as Y115 has indicated there have not been any ships to load there recently.

Nice shot Y115 and one mighty big pile of logs as well, imagine the truck traffic that is required to cart all this.

Question, how does PN rotate the 81 class through Portland/Victoria for maintenance?  I guess the first question is where is their maintenance done, and then second is if in NSW, how do they run the train schedules to get them back for maintneance?
