Thanks Rusty

The rail for Maroona to Portland is 47kg and was laid in the 1970's or 1980"s? As compared to the very old (1919) 41 kg on Maryborough to Ararat.

That said, I would give the projec ...

Warrnambool, Bairnsdale, Swan Hill and, perhaps, Shepparton (with a BG version of the SG bogie).

By local travel I assume you mean for example, Moe to Traralgon? Or similar journeys.

Would the (now completed) track upgrades improve line speeds and travel times for the current rolling stock? So the N Sets and the XPT? If so by how much?

The article states more trains how many more will be added to the timetable and what is passenger loading like on the Gippsland line?
Good question. As no third rail was installed ...
