An Aurizon freight service left Rocky yesterday for Cairns via the Blackwater and Goonyella coal systems to bypass the damaged track.

Should have put Hunter and Qld coal assets to be disposed of

Aurizon are buying the One Rail business and will dispose of the Hunter coal assets

Might be wrong but the delays as i understand them are due to problems dealing with packages in sorting centres and not in transporting stuff between locations.

The line might still run to Springsure but last time i was down that way it had trees growing in the middle of the track and had unrepaired flood damaged sections.
The Grain depot there was a nig ...

Aurizon are starting to ramp up staff to begin moving grain for Graincorp in the South West starting in a couple of months.

I believe PN has already started running an additional weekly freight between Townsville and Cairns due to increasing cement shipments from Cement Australia.

I wonder if it is purely cost related or if Watco's inability to ramp up services when required played a part.
The latter seems to be a gripe with Graincorp on their Queensland deal as well if the ...

Says it covers all of CBH's rail needs so i presume it means they are replacing Watco completely

Seems like your view has changed 180° since the Acacia Ridge thread

What are Qube going to be hauling?

For a destroyed loco 2471 looks surpringly ok sitting in the siding its in, wonder if it has a bent chassis to cause it.

Interesting news at a time when the Government still hasn't sorted out a contract for moving cattle from next year onwards.

A group of big producers built a loading facility on the main line at Thallon a few years ago , so i would presume that it is coming from there.

Has anyone heard anything about Graincorp approaching Aurizon to move grain in the South West for them? .
Have heard a few murmurs to that effect.

The Spirit of the Outback currently shunts Emerald in both directions to put off a second 2400 loco on the way west and then to reattach it on the easterly return due to the lack of available 1720's ...

I was told that the SOTO was no longer going to have a 1720 on it as QR no longer had enough operational units for one to be used on it.

The Gin at Yamala has a small spur line into it ,although it was last used a decade ago by a firm of removalists to transfer containers from train to truck.
Posted 05 May 2020 17:19 in Queensland by emerald-a
Is Linfox planning on using the new facility or are they staying in the current location?

Seems like there might be an opportunity for The Ghan and potentially other services to take a share of the Cruise passenger market post Covid.

Seems highly convenient that after over a year of failing to build anything it is all the viruses fault that its delayed
Posted 26 Apr 2020 16:35 in Queensland by emerald-a
The numbers quoted are too coarse to be useful, you need the fine detail of where people are travelling to.
If SoQ has a massive rise in passengers do you need more services to Cairns? . Not if ...

The line from Emerald to Longreach should reopen on Friday , Longreach to Winton is going to be closed for longer.
