Back to Horsham

With the new Wimmera Intermodal Rail Terminal nearly completed, (to be opened by a whole load of pollies on 8th August) it was time to return to Horsham, to photograph Wimmera Container Line operations before they move out of the station freight yard.

The Lok shunt tractor in action, preparing the Horsham to Melbourne intermodal train for WCL. When finished, SCT's CSR 003 and 005 picked up this part of the train, to connect with the rear end on road three, before departing at around 3pm. SCT now have the contract for this train, supplying both loco power and container flats.

The yard a bit quieter now the container wagons had departed.
