I didn't think the Mareeba platform was in use. Has something been done?

The Savannahlander sometimes use it. As being open or closed I don't know, but it is used for special trains.

Also the train was placed in the Yandina loop to cross X401, so I photographed each carriage in the consist. Unfortunately may be the last time we see these carriages in traffic..

Great shots there Rocket Rod. Good idea snapping those cars individually. Smile

Did 120 shit itself coming home? I heard scuttlebutt through other forums that the 2400 did most or some of the work?

Either way, it's pretty remarkable that the old EE could go all that way without too much incident Smile

QR1620 in Mareeba rail yards. Moving from the old Atherton mainline to the Chillagoe branch line and then setting back to the Wye to turn around.
