Tony Howker's Engine

Published by Chris Draper at 7:38 AM under Other Railway visits

Here's a photo taken by Tony Howker of Noel and I enjoying his Black Five at Campbelltown Miniature Railway near Melbourne recently. The track is impressive, the locomotive ran sweetly - what more could you ask for!

Tony will be visiting the Winter Creek in November and I hope he has half as much fun as I did this day.

Australian Steam

Published by Chris Draper at 7:52 AM under Other Railway visits | Steam Locomotives

Spent some time in Australia for work last week and stayed on for the weekend. Saturday had a wonderful day of Driver experience at the Victorian Goldfields Railway, a preserved branchline driving a broad guage J class steam locomotive.

WONDERFUL 

Sunday I was lucky to be a guest of Colin & Nancy Campbell at the Campbelltown Miniature Railway and was invited to drive Tony Howker's lovely LMS Black Five.

Here's a recent picture of Colin & Nancy I found on the web - My pictures to follow as soon as I am settled back in NZ and can unload the camera.
