PCJ van transfers to/from Ballarat, September 2009

El Zorro ran a transfer between Melbourne and Ballarat via North Geelong, T357 took V/Line power van PCJ491 to the Ballarat Workshops for refurbishment, bringing back completed van PCJ493 (formerly PCO2). You don't see Bona (engine and a single guards van) moves that often!

Second person gets out to override the signal, I assume T357 doesn't have a Motorola LSDU radio onboard to do it remotely
