Focus on the permanent way

A Vlocity three-car DMU heading towards Epsom (a suburb of Bendigo) at North Bendigo Junction on an evening train from Melbourne, about 165 kms away. The track in the foreground is the line to Eaglehawk and Swan Hill and has rails fixed to wooden sleepers with a mixture of Pandrol clips and dog-spikes, typical of the 'just enough, just-in-time' approach to rail infrastructure maintenance in Victoria. Why, oh why don't they just do it properly?!!
