Rounding the curves at Yerrinbool.

Last week saw double QBX locos become the norm on 1311 empty container service to Harefield.  

QBX005/006 and MZ1437 running through Picton Yard.

The next day QBX001/002 led the service, this time captured running through Bargo.

Aurizon MMY521 Rail Grinder

MMY521 parked at Picton Yard last week following a busy weekend of rail grinding.  Of interest is the centre wagon which looks to be a former CFCLA CQQY wagon.
