That's just a very short distance from where I broke the leg.... Was the ABT running?
It's great to see "active" steam trains.

Not the prettiest of places to break a leg.. I saw no trains running , only this puffing steamer.

I did some checking and it is hoped to have it re-opened in January...
I will be so disappointed if I get there and miss it again!..

The steam trains do have that something evocative about them..

That hill with the granite outcrop at the back would have made you feel a little at home Lex!

Nice looking structure, and some neat old locomotives to boot. Great shot.

Great Locomotives, haven't ever seen any like this before.

Well cheers everybody and welcome to Queenstown Tassie

In the late 60's we were almost shipped to Tassie, Roseberry actually. Gee, I would still be on the dole now!!

You might want to wear some splints or something this time, Stuart ;-)

Is that a hint of regret I hear there, D? You could always trade the gas-guzzler for an old Bedford and head off now....

Well in the late 60s I was in a nappy and had no input as to where I went.... :-) Roseberry Tas not my idea of a fun destination...

Dit lyk na speelgoed treintjies.

GasGasL€X on November 29, 2013
