Thanks for nice photo! Train is on No 1 pass at Lincoln which used to be the main track. The track to the right was newly built in 1978 and became the current main track. The coal hopper is on No 2 pass which used to be the sole passing track at Lincoln and was normally blocked by the yard with cars. By creating the No 1 pass, we had a place to park road trains while they made their set offs and/or pick ups in the yard and they didn't tie up the main track the whole time, and so we could be running other trains around them.
