Townsville South Yard freight removal well underway.

Otherwise noted 2 x 4000s leading a phosphate train into the port with 2475D in tow.

Koomi is between Blaxland and Bowenville. I suspected something unplanned. Pity I didn't take a drive down that way. With today's maximum temperature in Dalby being 42°C, my money is on a heat buckle...

We went for a drive along the gravel road from Bowenville to Blaxland this morning - no sign of any derailment, only trackwork in progress near Koomamurra. It's 43 degrees in Oakey today for two days in a row.
