Pacific National broad gauge grain

Grain is a major freight traffic in Victoria, but drought has cut the level of traffic in recent years. Trains operate on both broad and standard gauges, with the main destinations being export terminals at Melbourne and Geelong, as well as Portland, and a number of domestic flour mills

X42, T400, XR552 and XR557 run around a grain at Melbourne Yard. The Kensington rake is stabled alongside minus loco
