Kevin, this is a match made in heaven, I can't find my Western Division WTT
but, guess what, I have found my 1960 [from 20th November] Southern Division
WTT and No.6 is indeed the up Temora Mail at Harden 9.00-9.15pm Monday,
Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, dunno why the 15 minute stop, no Refresh at
Harden and surely Engine Requirements would have been attended to at
Demondrille just 3 1/2 miles before Harden where 5 minutes was allowed. The
weather is pretty brisk here in Melbourne. I wouldn't mind spending tonight
aboard tonight's No.6, steam heated and a 38 on the front.

Rick, I must say I agree wth you, reading this stuff certainly knocks
meditation into a cocked hat. So glad you liked my photo of my model of
Carcoar, realistic, ain't it? Smartarse.

Can't recall if Swan Ponds actually had a South Box!
