On this day

Diesel locomotive Y164.

Another backlog of updates

15 July 2010 22:55 PM

Over the past week or so I have been out chasing El Zorro grains up north.

On Friday July 9 I headed down to Geelong to see a down train depart, on the way I saw the up Mildura pass through Melbourne, a PN grain at North Geelong, and the GWA sleeper train for Adelaide at Inverleigh. The El Zorro locos were getting service at Geelong Loco, Y168 being taken off the train after suffering a hotbox on the trip from Tocumwal. The locos ended up getting stabled, leaving me with nothing else to see.

On the morning of Monday July 12 the El Zorro train was due to depart Geelong for Birchip, I headed out to St Arnaud to wait for it at sunrise, but nothing came though. It turned out the train was delayed at Warrenheip due to a failed Pacific National train, then needed to wait for a path between Ballarat and Maryborough between V/Line driver training specials. I headed south to Maryborough to wait for it, following the train back north to Donald, where the crew stabled the train in the yard, having run out of hours for the day.

On Tuesday July 13 the train finally made it up to Birchip to load, having left a bit earlier than I expected. I followed the train back south to Maryborough, where the train stabled as per usual, waiting for a path to Ballarat, the line having been crippled by V/Line to run their once daily passenger train.

Updates from South Australia

I have finally gotten around to uploading my photos from my recent week long trip to South Australia - it was the reason for the two weeks when no new photos appeared!

What did I get up to?

Plus when I got back to Victoria I spent a day around Geelong not seeing much, followed by a day where I saw three broad gauge freights (the Waurn Ponds cement, an El Zorro grain, and the Apex train to Brookyn).
