Mackay Harbour may not be the bigest in the state but it still sees an interesting mix of trains.
2808 + 2846 (vehicle) with 30 wagons pull into Calen Loop at 10.06 to cross with 2197F + 22 empty sugar wagons at 10.46. The
crew had a bit of a laugh at the silly bugger standing in the rain taking photos but managed to give a big wave. Saturday
After discharging its load of sugar at Mackay 2197F and its train cross the diamond for the 610mm cane tramway after crosing
the above train. One of several on the line between Mackay and Proserpine this one has a 60 km/h speed limit and is about
one kilometer north of Calen Loop. 2197F continued north and once again it stopped at Yalboroo down home signal so it wouldn't
block the level crossing at 10.25. Saturday 15/11/03.
