Re: Gembrook Railway, Aus, 1947/8

Fascinating. I was going to say they appear to have allowed passengers to sit with their feet dangling out of the windows like on the Puffing Billy Railway, before discovering it was the Puffing Billy. Very prominent tarp covers. I might make mine a bit more generous. And the next time I'm criticise...

Re: Peckforton Light Railway - Video Library

Thanks chaps. I must admit it did get rather warm, though I did stay out of the midday sun for a couple of hours.

Re: Peckforton Light Railway - Video Library

My latest effort. I couldn't let the spell of dry weather pass without a full operating session (three days of running to represent one day on the railway).

Boy, was it hot!!

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Thanks Rik, No the track is code 250 AMS track with very poor UV plastic. Much deterioration under Australian UV conditions, that's why there is shade cloth over Leawarra and things look a bit mottled! Grant. Ah, yes. I see now looking more closely at the first photo.
