Long Island steel train

The Long Island steel train serves the BHP mill at Hastings, south of Frankston. The steel is transferred from broad to standard gauge trains at the Melbourne Freight Terminal at South Dynon. In 2016 this facility replaced the Melbourne Steel Terminal, just west of North Melbourne station.

BL34 leads the up steel train through Southern Cross

Note the front half of the train is mostly standard 20 foot containers
