The table-fruit traffic had long been lost to road, but the Golden Circle cannery in Brisbane still took fruit for juicing by rail, where damage from bulk loading is not an issue. The traffic ceased altogether at the end of 2006, so I'm pleased to have a few shots of the train in my collection. Having swapped empties for loads at The Summit, the train ran on to Stanthorpe for stabling until its return much later that afternoon. The train had a short reprieve and I followed some of the last workings in March 2007. On this occasion though, I left the train at Stanthorpe and headed up to the line west of Toowoomba to get my first glimpse of that line for many years. 25 May 2006.
