On the money there, trainbrain and taking heed of what james said, not to jinx the show just yet, nothing in the bag yet.
A good harvest is obviously great news for the farming and wider communities as well as grain related bussiness' but also from a rail prospective, I'm hoping it is good news, I would say it's going to keep the pressure on the Govt to keep both gauges of line well maintained. If there was an R/S harvest I reckon it would be very easy for them ( govt ) to put any maintenance / upgrading in too hard basket, so hopefully they try and keep up with the challenges of keeping all lines running well.
I guess it will take a fair bit of grain to replenish local and domestic stocks and have a bit of a buffer and NSW is still in drought conditions, so there may be enough grain for export as well. The grain companies will be crunching numbers shortly and hopefully they will also keep the tension on for rail transport.
An excellent harvest will not only mean plenty of grain to shift, it will also be of great benefit for hay production and may warrant an increase in the frequency of the Ultima Hay Rack, fingers crossed there.
We shall keep observing and watch it unfold.
