542 in the loop at Manutahi.
Today saw the very first train ever to use the new loop at Manutahi as part of a test run to see if operational proceedures are correct for crossing trains there. 
Still some work to do yet, and the loop remains closed for buisness for now.

Great to see a new crossing loop! Although it doesn't look very long at all.

No its not very long Hamish, only a mere 260m - only JUST long enough to fit a 16 tank milk train in.
KR intends to extend it out to 600+ meters with the fullness of time, and install ctc, but when that happens is anyones guess.
