Rolling into Tailem Bend, GM38 powers past as the 2nd unit behind ALCo 701 hauling 3152 loaded Viterra Pinnaroo grain.
Locomotive FQ03 was attached here for the run to Adelaide over the hills and into Outer Harbour.
From July 2015, the Mallee branch lines (Pinnaroo/Tookayerta-Loxton) were closed from Tailem Bend and replaced by truck haulage.
Locomotive GM38 is now stored from service and awaiting its fate.
