7902 has been held Moorabool loop and mp4 still at dynon. Looks like they might be trying to move upright part of grain now to clear separation Sr.

No; the rails are still there. It's a detrainment.

Yes a derailment of some grain wagons. I don't see any carriages nearby.

Looks like the crossover was restored to normal under the tail of the train.

They don't have to be cub reporters to not know what they are writing about.

I can see what caused the problem.  One of the employees isn't wearing his hard hat!

Word is the derailer was set back to normal with the train not passed the point.

Well at least we know it works.

Quite a bit of damage to the permanent way with a lot of misalignment now.

It is luckily the standard gauge has the main bypass on that section but would be affecting standard gauge grain trains access to the loop and CIGL ?

CIGL of course stands for 'Chantiers d'Insertion des Grands Lacs' for the benefit of those of us who don't speak Geelong.

Probably still in better nick than half the freight lines in Victoria Rolling Eyes.

There's a PN grainy still stuck at Sea Lake due to the derailment. Does anyone know when it will be able to head back south and unload again?
