Last night 9056 arrived back into Bendigo from Pira with 16 grain wagons. 6 of those being stored at Pira the other 10 went up with G529 the other night on 9055, they were used to fish the 6 out of the siding as the G was too heavy.
We also had EM100 floating around the past few days making trips to Swanhill and Echuca.

Here is a shot of 9055 from the other night.

Todays' task for me was the editing together of a collection of videos taken the Bendigo area in 2012. So, sit back, turn up the speakers and enjoy "Trains in the Bendigo area 2012: The unpublished collection" Smile 8)

With the Swan Hill line opening today, A78 travelled light engine to Pyramid Hill to retrieve the grain hoppers still there after last week's derailment. I caught it shut down in Bendigo yard after returning. For anyone interested, its still there today if you're after shots of a solo A on a train (even if stabled)

On Monday June 10th, R 761 and S 313 will return to Melbourne along the Bendigo line and are expected back at 8:00pm at Southern Cross station.
Caught them at Swan Hill and what a wonderful day it was. They arrived in glorious sunshine and it was great seeing R 761 turned and serviced.
Many locals came through the day to see them stabled before their late night departure.

Good afternon all, on Friday morning 9051 went to Elmore to lead the second rake of 20 VHGF's with G524-H1-X42. Later that night around the Midnight mark 9052 departed Bendigo with 40 VHGF's with X42 short end leading. 9071 ran as G515-X31-S313 that day also.


Currently atm we have G541-XR554 on a rake of 40 VHGF's sitting in Bendigo yard ready to run north tomorrow 5/8/13. It's been well over 10 years since G541 has been in Bendigo as it was previously used on SG and then on the Long Island steel service once converted back to BG.
