While travelling on a Gold Coast train, I saw yellow chains near and around the dual-gauge line around Yeronga station.. does anyone know what they are there for? They're not blocking the line or anything. :?:

Seen at the Ipswich railway workshops an SMU 266 and an flat fronted IMU/SMU apparently there for work to be done. They are in the area previously open for conducted tours around the workshops which are now no longer given, as are rides on the travelator.
