On 22/12 these locos were in the same place and appeared not to have moved. I noticed this time the timber chocks were in place on the rails in both directions for the wheels of 2411.

Nicely captured - so PN and Aurizon share shunting duties for the copper branch?
  Sulla1 Chief Commissioner

They are at the moment, with Aurizon now also hauling copper anodes for Glencore, it returned to the Copper Refinery branch a couple of months ago. I'm not sure how permanent the current shared arrangement will be though.

Saturday 19/01, the Westlander with 2485 is standing in Toowoomba station at the southerly end of the platform due to track work between Toowoomba and Brisbane. A security man is with it to avoid vandalism. He also volunteered that the two locos I previously reported standing in the dock platform are to use in case the Westlander's loco fails.
