“Where the heck is that”, I hear you ask! Jung is a township located along the mainline between Melbourne and Adelaide, in Western Victoria. A small town with a population only just nudging 100, it is a farming community, with many acres of crops surrounding the town area. Jung is the highest point in the Wimmera region, the skyline dominated by the disused grain silos, the connection to the mainline long severed. I was fortunate enough to spend a few hours trackside at Jung with a couple of good friends in October of 2012. Although we only saw three trains (3WX2 PN SteelLink, 2PM6 PN superfreighter and 5MA6 extra QRNational freight), we did take great delight in watching the sun set across the impressive concrete silos.
