This might not be that unusual but on Friday the log train nearly reversed across Henry street, would of thought they would turn the locos on the junction/wye not the whole train!

What happened at Spreyton yesterday? L-xings activated every where and a train idle in between two. Curious visitor.

Not sure if I seen high up tasrail official in Wynyard Friday Arvo just near Doctors Rocks on the scenic route to Wynyard inspecting the track.
but it was where the council would have no interest. as its just beach on the other side.

Wasn't the line cut somewhere around there in the last 12 months by some form of contractor?

Ok, thanks.  I was looking back through posts here and the last one was a bit ambiguous.

Wish they would do the same (relay it) to the Risdon Line,  where contractors tore up the track for the Lutana water recycling project. The line may be closed, but it is still under "care & maintenance" AFAIK. Not much care and maintenance going on there!!!

So I wonder if they are accessing budgets for track upgrade along this line.
  Z1NorthernProgress2110 Chief Commissioner

The line won't be upgraded. There is no plans to gain any traffic to/from Wiltshire.

Silica plant in wynyard you could have a spur off calder road level crossing.

Most of the silica bags are loaded into shipping containers in lots of 21 if I remember correctly.

Production is a lot better than the old hey bridge plant, which used second hand bits from Toxicide.

Anything is possible for the future..

What, 6 containers a day from TAM? Really worth the effort on a spur? No. Hence why its trucked.
  Amraks Junior Train Controller

if that plant goes bigger it could output allot more than 6 containers a day.

Not sure if they are drying this silica.

Index Minerals was a wet dry process
