Everyday Queensland Observations (now with added trams)
Damn missed the train through Rocky Fatty. Would have liked to get a photo on Denison Street coming out of the yard. That is the 150th support train Fatty. Didn't have 2 WSE gins on it did it ?

I'm guessing the Q150 support rain as Hugh said. Interesting they must have dropped the 2 WSA, CL and QLXH off south of there...

I thought the idea to run the steamer in the wet season with the tender water flap open was to save water bills????

No gins. Only the gondala wagons.

A water wagon and two open wagons loaded with coal and light up wood are now stored in the Wool Road at South Yard, Townsville.

Hmmm...I must have missed the water gin when I went past.

No nickel trains until February. Would have been a shunt train relocating an empty nickel set. 2800's are here to stay on the nickels.
