Sad to know this scene may only occur a handful of times before the Sunlanders are removed...

Killymoon Creek truck crash 27/9/2014

A bit of chaos in Townsville at the moment...a semitrailer crashed off the Bruce Highway and onto the NCL near Killymoon Creek around 9.00am. 8273 was stopped midsection north of Storth just short of the crash and VCQ5 was held at Ayr. By 12.30pm the obstruction was removed with 8273 arriving at South Yard at 12.55pm. The tilt followed closely and was in the Townsville station at 1.10pm, and was supposed to depart at 1.30pm to clear the platform for P984 Sunlander.

2x 1720s with 39 stock wagons westbound through Miles.

I'm excited.

I support the move to put Freight on Rail. Whats the point of having infrastructure if it is not being utilised.
