While I am busy playing with Ideas I think it is worth keeping a history going. I have been frantically google-ing away for photo’s and tid bits. Here is what I have found;
Up the grade toward Kurrajong Yard. Note the inside guide rail, perhaps someone can enlighten me as to its purpose and how it works as I have seen this on corners and grades before.
Known as “The Pansy” seen here crossing the Hawkesbury River. I have no idea how this train came about this name
Again in Kurrajong yard. I assume this is a CCA and an FO in Tuscan and Russet Livery.
Road overbridge with the Hawkesbury River Crossing in the background. I may try to use this on the entrance to the layout but it is to early to be guaranteed.
So these photo’s give some ideas to reflect on and use to my advantage. As I have said before I am going to use some modellers licence for the area but overall I think if I can capture the atmosphere of the railway I will be well pleased. As I find little bits I will continue to add them to the blog as I am intrigued by the venture.
