Inkerman Loop

Home

The crossing loop at Inkerman is the first crossing loop south of the township of Home Hill and is located at the 1236 kilometer post. It sits in the shadow of Mt Inkerman as well as the southern fringe of the Burdekin Irragation Area.

A southbound train headed by 2189F and 2152D wait in Inkerman Loop to cross with a loaded coal train, with 2195F + 2139 in front of a rake of  GOMB and GOMC gondolas bound for the metal refinery at Yabulu to the north of Townsville. As soon as the coal train cleared the loop the freight departed the loop and powered south. 10.35 27/11/04
