A MASSIVE grain train rolled out of Narrabri and into Newcastle yesterday.

The 1.3 kilometres long train made its way across the North West farming districts and over the Great Dividing Range to port.

Grain merchant Louis Dreyfus, which uses the Newcastle Agri Terminal (NAT) for exports, supplied the wheat.

It was sourced from Moree and Narrabri, the motherload being consolidated at Narrabri before being hauled into port by Southern Shorthaul Rail’s locomotives.

The train was unloaded at Newcastle Agri Terminal (NAT) last night, its cargo bound for South East Asia.
