William has some cracker shots on the very fussy Rail Pictures website and has written a report for us from a road trip last weekend..
Might as well throw this post in the bin then!
Seeing as this is my first post i guess i should quickly introduce myself... hmm where to start...
When I was only one year old my parents bought me a plastic duplo trainset - 18 years later it seems I took i liking to it. Now studying Mechanical Engineering at the local polytech I still dream of being in the hotseat rather than standing lineside taking photos that people give you dumb looks for. But hey, gotta get your kicks somewhere.
A few texts back & fourth with a fellow foamerite and I soon find myself on an Intercity coach bound for palmy running a nice one hour late. After about 10 minutes to stretch my legs we're already in the car to have a goon down at milson - before I know it we're in Wanganui in total darkness (too bad i forgot my tripod).On our return to palmy after even more detours we quickly scanned the various web circles to find a very helpful post by the one & only AH. 542/6:45 departure? right we'll get up at 6. Now off to bed.
6:30 - right, time to get up.
After a mad dash to maccas for your typical teenage breakfast we're on the road to fielding expecting to catch up somewhere between Feilding & Greatford - that plan didn't last for long. "3: proceed from Marton to Wanganui" RIGHT, we're awake.
After finally catching up let the piccies begin.
Till next time -
