Warrnambool freight

The Warrnambool freight carries containers between Melbourne and the Westvic depot in Warrnambool, usually running Monday through Friday. Operated by Pacific National, El Zorro took over the contract in April 2008, before PN won it back in October 2008. The train length is constrained by short crossing loops and often runs during the day on the down trip due to pathing issues beyond Geelong
