Watco Australia's HL203 arrives at Midland, with a rake of what looks to be Grain Wagons, this will get propelled into the sidings where the Track Machine came from

I'm in NZ at present. Our tour includes some rail components. Wednesday we rode the Glenbrook Vintage Railway. Our train was very ably pulled by Ww 644. A very impressive volunteer outfit.

Today, Friday 24/02/2017, sighted:
9233 + 9020 on a southbound mixed freight at Taihape.
Several Wellington suburban units.

In Auckand, saw 3 unidentified derelict steam locomotives.

  "Silverwater" stop/siding on the Brisbane Valley Line.
Posted by: BorallonRailMotor - 03-Feb-2017, 08:13 PM - Forum: Queensland - Replies (3)

Hi all,

I am curious. I thought I knew all of the former stations/stops & even their former names...but upon visiting the Heritage House Museum at Yarraman yesterday, I came across a reference to, "Silverwater", which apparently was a wayward stop/siding north of Mt Hallen...can anybody provide me with any information with regards to this stop, as it's got intrigued! I believe, "Silverwater", was the name of the private property that the siding was near...

  Clarendon Station photo query
Posted by: BorallonRailMotor - 03-Oct-2016, 08:41 PM - Forum: Queensland - Replies (3)

Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anyone had any photos of old Clarendon Station from along the Brisbane Valley Railway Line at all? I've tried Bonzle & Trove, to no avail, but maybe I'm not putting the correct key words in to the search bar?

  FOUND SD CARD
Posted by: Maxn99 - 14-Sep-2016, 01:54 PM - Forum: Queensland - Replies (4)

While watching the Dawnie Express return through Oakey on Monday afternoon, a Sandisk 32GB Ultra SD card was found on the platform. Obviously it belongs to one of the train chasers as it consists of videos of trains. Maybe someone can shed light on its owner. Confused

  THE DAWNIE EXPRESS
Posted by: Maxn99 - 08-Sep-2016, 01:08 PM - Forum: Queensland - No Replies

Thursday 8th September
The Dawnie Express, named in honour of Olympic swimming gold medallist, Dawn Fraser passed through Oakey this morning en route to Charleville. The trip is raising money for Save the Bilby Fund of which Dawn is a patriot. She missed catching the steam train out of Brisbane yesterday so will be going out on tonights Westlander to catch it up at Roma for the final leg to Charleville.
It was the first steam train to cross over the new Oakey rail bridge since it was completed last October.
The loco was supposed to be 1079 but was 1089 and had diesel loco 1732 in tow.
