Golden Square Railcam

Hi all, my dad (the user bonzel on RP) and I have recently set up a railcam at Golden Square, mainly covering the regular pass movements but also the odd freights that run up to Bendigo and beyond, including the Deni rice, grain and light loco moves from SSR Bendigo to Dynon and vice versa. Anyone interested can find it at the link below (Edit: I've tried to get the link to show, but it won't go, so remove the spaces below when entering it into the address bar)

I'm not sure exactly where they have put the camera, but there is double track from somewhere south of Kangaroo Flat station, through the old Golden Square station, with the line returning to single track just before the Thistle St bridge. The yard starts on the other side of the bridge.

How many of the yard tracks count as the main line? From the shine or rust on the tops of the rails, trains mostly seem to use a single track through the yard...

We mainly put it up for our own references such as the occasional grain train or light loco move from SSR. The work required to get it to send images to a flickr account was minimal so we decided to send the images there as well and make it available to anyone.

But yes, there is mainly passes that go past it (Bendigo doesn't get much freight these days) but here's one from the other night.
