Wish I had the money to go down under for your Spring our Autumn/Winter…but alas it can’t be…. :( :( :(

Looks a very interesting line indeed and some nice Locos and Rolling stock too.

You'd regret being in Sydney at present - it has rained all week since we had that last run. Oh well we needed the rain.

I have started a new thread just for Keith's Bottle Creek line, so as not to confuse with my Sandstone and Termite.

I have seen the weather in Sydney, it’s horrendous.

Thanks for the new thread Greg.

Over summer, many of the businesses on the Sandstone and Termite close for the holidays.
So the traffic has reduced till a single van was all that was required for Sunday's Goods.
Here's a quick look at the movement.




Holidays have now ended, so hopefully traffic will increase soon.

Great set of shots, Greg. Is the soundcard triggered by a wheel cam? It's well synched.

That's a great sounding sound card you are using, what is it?

Thanks, I like the sound I got. It's my own circuit design. The Bachmann 4-6-0 has a wheel cam that gives 2 chuffs per revolution. I have changed it to give 4 .

Love it Greg. The sound does remind me a lot from the days of steaming locos....The shots in the video of running behind the driver are brilliant....

The summer holiday period is over and the industries on the SaTr have returned to work.
So there is some traffic to be moved! Here's a video of delivering logs to the Melaleuca sawmill

That's for the comments everyone. I did wonder if it would be too boring.
Does anyone what to comment on whether some interspersed 'high level' shots would give a better idea of the shunting?
