Yes im interested in what is in the boxes . It feels almost too soon for grain in boxes, but maybe not. Was wondering if maybe dairy exports had started to pick up again.My random guess is that it is containerised grain, but I stress that is a guess.What was it hauling?Containers for export, james !
Large amounts of containerised grain currently being moved in NSW by the likes of Fletchers and Crawfords.
Hay? Plenty of it around in the Goulburn Valley and guessing elsewhere. There was at least one large hay exporter in the Tocumwal area who regularly used rail to port. Usually in 40' containers I think of which there appeared to be a few on the front of the train that BS shared the video of.Good pickup, emmastreet, forgot about the hay joint in Toc. Think they were a partnership company of the hay plant over in Ultima.
Incidentally, the Govt are making it harder for this train to operate. 80T wagons are now limited to 30km/h between Toc and Strathmerton, 40km/h between Strathmerton and Shepparton.Bit off the mark here.
Hard to believe this line used to have passenger N-sets zipping over it every day...
I was of the belief that the broad gauge grain wagons that are in wide use with PN were 80tonne. Am I wrong?
Correct, the Maryvale runs 22t axle loading on the South Line.I was of the belief that the broad gauge grain wagons that are in wide use with PN were 80tonne. Am I wrong?Qube has permission to load to 21t on the Maryvale (maybe even 22t but only on the South line)
