Monday Morning Photo. 6/04/09.
G'day all, desuetude* describes my state since last I posted. Never let it be said that I'm lost for words. Come to think of it though I did say that in my last Monday Morning Photo post.
To make up for my neglect I've scanned a few extra photos from the Peterborough Division. Some of these I've sent before but those of you that have seen them can look away now if you like.
So here is the first installment. More during the week.
The level crossing is the one at Hurlstone Street, I think.
220 is running through the platform road having come into town from the east. Note the S.A.R issue verandah waterbag hanging off the cab.
The roundhouse shot is pretty self-explanatory, I was trying to emulate the the photos that I had seen in "Trains" magazine and the S.A.R was the only railway in Australia that followed U.S. practice and always stabled their engines funnel first.
*the word has been bouncing around in my scone for days, I just had to use it. I'm sure no-one will need to look it up!!
