I LOVE IT! Thanks for the links, there are a bunch of Garratt videos for me to drool over.

Very neat!

My younger son hopefully will get a chance to ride "Puffing Billy" when he is in OZ this fall.

Nothing like a bit of Puffing Billy...my local piece of narrow gauge history, and also my modelling interest.  I was down there a few weeks back, taking the family on it for the first time.  Your son will have a ball Herb.  Make sure he does the full run if he goes, from Belgrave to Gembrook.  Its a 2hr trip each way, and the changes in scenery are pretty spectacular.  Here's a couple of recent pics...









Cheers,

Dan Pickard

Dan, you are quite the photographer! Rather than the "normal" 3/4 shot that most people--including myself--would take, You understand composition. I have to think that you have had some sort of professional training- but whether or not, you have one h**l of a good eye.

I will certainly show your shots to my son. He has ridden most of the narrow lines in Wales, and has an appreciation of 2' gauge equipment. I know that he will enjoy PB.

Thanks Herb. No photography training, but yes, I do tend to look out for the alternate angle, or unusual light. It was good fun working with the misty stream around the loco's on that day. If your son gets down, he should also stop at Menzies Creek along the line. It has a pretty good steam museum that is getting a big renovation at the minute which should be nearing completion in the coming months.

Cheers,
Dan Pickard
