Great to hear you're taking full advantage of the excellent weather at the moment Grant. Theres something very relaxing about just sitting and shunting.

I've just spent two and a half days doing nothing but shunting trucks and Pass. stock around Leawarra yard. Two engines in steam, amazing how long gas and water last cut right back. Engines also look good just sitting in the sun with a wisp of steam at the safety. Only time an engine left the yard was when the Bagnall hauled all the stock back up to the shed last thing today.
Very enjoyable.

I love the sound of that, fantastic!

Sounds like an ideal 2.5 days to me ......

Looking forward to the day I can do just that, in a sugar mill yard setup. Sounds you had an absolutely marvelous time.
