Here's what I'm aiming for. . .

. . .when modeling the North-West line: Here's an excellent photo of triple 48 Class--4857/4872/4870--ex Werris Creek engine depot, waiting out a meet at the crossing loop at Watermark, between Breeza and Gap, on November 11, 1969. The photographer is Colin Hussey, who happened to be the fireman on this grain train. Check out the predominance of BWH/FWH grain hoppers, along with a few of the newer cylindrical-side aluminum WHX cars, and especially how they weathered. And that certainly looks like some welded rail there, too!This train came from Narrabri. What an excellent view, and the track looks pretty tight at well!
