Ian, single track. I think the driver sits on the left side of the cockpit.

A black & white photo. It also looks nice.

Hi Ge Ko,

So you don't think I was driving! When I think about rail journeys, my mind goes back to the black & white photos that used to be on display in the sleeper compartments of our passenger services, so the occasional B&W seems necessary to tell the story of a rail journey...even, though the Casuarina forest is a gentle soft green colour, and whispers in the wind.

However, our artist friend GGR, is renowned for painting a large red pomegranate on railway tracks, so this B&W sets the scene nicely for our imagination to be surprised by a big red pomegranate just around the corner!

Warmest greetings to you both,

Hi Mario,

Having seen your special gallery of B&W images of railways, I can see why you like this. I am amazed that you found one of my two B&W images of railway lines.

Regards from Sydney,

You have a very good railway gallery Ian and I have found your second b/w image! It is great! Thanks for sharing.

Best wishes, Mario
