Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

I read on another forum that the canopy was not made of strong enough perspex and this is why it blew off. Was that true or did you ever discover what happened to cause the accident? Would that be the same forum where Bill Smith is depicted as the spawn of Satan and your good self accused of being ...

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

Could do with a lick of paint, as it's very close to the sea. https://live.staticflickr.com/7922/47035847131_96dfae77a1_c.jpg Sister loco "Pozieres...

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

Rightio. Went on a bit of a train chasing holiday with my mate Rob. We covered about 5500km worth, driving from Ballarat in Victoria, right the way down to Ceduna in South Aus over six days. I did all of the driving, and am still suffering from what can only be termed as "Car Lag" - absolutely knack...

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

Splendid and very interesting photographs. I never saw Hush Hush and rather surprisingly until you mentioned it I had not heard of it. We learn something every day. My wifes grandfather was an engine driver whose claim to fame was he once drive the royal train in the early 1900's with old Queen Mar...

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

A few from recent times which may (or may not) be of some interest... GM22+G513+602+C509 passing through Tatyoon with 6KN2 grain. The train number means 6 = Friday, K = Western Victoria, in this case Murtoa, N = Newcastle (NSW - sorry Bill) 2 = second train to depart that location for the day. This ...
