Mildura, Victoria, Australia

The ceiling of the marketplace in Mildura.

A ray of sunlight just caught the eye of this little variegated fairy wren. Taken in the beautiful Mildura Botanic Gardens, Victoria and New South Wales, Australia.

(9102) passed elders loop on the up at withXR555,G525 at 08.39am on the 02,04,2013

Back in December 1987 V/Line N475, fairly new out of the box, leads T349 class on the loaded Mildura oil tanks through the crossing loop at Tourello.

Roaring into Lara 5 hours behind schedule, A71 leads the charge with A77, XR552, G527 and G525 in tow as they haul 9102 Mildura 'Fruit Flyer' goods to Appleton Docks in Melbourne from Merbein, Vic (near Mildura).

 

G525 was declared a failure at Merbein resulting in it remaining as the last unit for the trip back to Melbourne. Commonly, the 'G' Class unit would always lead this service, if not the XR class. Already running hours behind, A71 took the lead to Geelong where units XR552 and G527 were added in as '3rd and 4th' unit.

 

This certainly is the most impressive 'lash-up' I've seen to date.

Swainsona Formosa - The floral emblem of South Australia - it occurs in arid regions, often after heavy rainfalls and can withstand the extremes of temperatures of inland deserts.

The beautiful winter day was coming to an end. The colours as it reflected on the Murray River was so dazzling I had to catch it to remember our first day here.

Notching up away from Speed, XR555 leads X44 and G527 North bound with 9101 empty Mildura 'Fruity' goods to Merbein (near Mildura)

 

During 2015, the Victorian State Government announced a plan to convert sections of the Yelta line into Standard Gauge along with building brand new lines connection regional areas to ports faster and effective. Trains like 9101/9102 Mildura goods could be a thing of the past come 2016.
