Through Broadmeadows on the Down around 8:40pm.  The 2 T Class sounding very nice indeed.

Train hauling 17 or so containers.  Driven by the Chief Taco himself I understand!

Any ideas on the return working?

Would think this train would be on a similar return path as the PN Tocumwal goods.

Can't really afford to be much later due to the evening's down Shepparton passenger service.

That's wierd, seems that the cam that updates to http://www.flickr.com/photos/Railpage missed it...   Confused

Does this train run for a different operator to the pacnat train?
Or were pacnat unable/unwilling to add extra services up to Tocumwal?

Maybe Lowndes will be starting his own suburban service to Tocumwal!

Did the train pick up an extra loco at Seymour on its return trip?
A little hard to tell from the buncam photo.

Is this new service to Tocumwal more of Emerald Group's new services?
Anyone know why all the grain from Tocumwal is loaded into containers? Is there no wagons available or is it a different export market?

This is not the emerald service.  That is a different service which I understand will be run with WA grain wagons on hire.

The Toc service is a brand new service and will run 3 times per week.

Due out this evening with 378/341.  T341 likely to lead back in tomorrow night!

I wish we had Tallarook on that night.

Then again the Tocumwal never lets us down on any of the sheduled TrainWatchers nights with 2 S class back to back being the highlight one year.

I'm betting the crew will run T378 around to lead on the up. Not sure if T341 can lead on the mainline?

T378 has been leading in both directions each time the train has run. I dont see why tonight would be any different. I thoight it was restricted to trailing unit only
