Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

A good job you didn't enter one of these photos for the Lineside Industries photo comp. My photo wouldn't have stood a chance!
Really great atmosphere created. The yard has a busy feel to it.

Good to see you're back in the garden and getting some track down, Rod. Looks like that was a nasty tumble - take care.
