Video clip taken at Kapooka of 3642 heading out to The Rock, notice at the start of the video some idiot standing on the rail to get his photo of the train coming under the road bridge. I do know that up behind us on the hill was some members from this page taking photos who may have a clearer picture of this person.

That is just appalling behaviour, especially if there was already an established photo line set up when the person arrived. I don't know if I'ld been able to contain myself if I'ld been there - I reckon a few rocks may have been thrown. Did you happen to notice what type of car he was driving?
Bevan Wall
Bevan, I couldn't agree more. People standing in front of other people with vests on (or off) is pretty poor behavior. Seems to happen at every steam tour these days. For the record, he was wearing a CityRail vest and a CountryLink cap (although as in most cases, I doubt he happens to work for either organisation, would likely claim he works for a different railway if challenged).

Of course, never mind the fact that everyone up there would be tresspassing. Wink

Baloney; there's a public road up there. Didn't you see the Railway Crossing sign?

That's not a public road. It's a track to gain access to the rail corridor.

I'll agree with that in theory, although that doesn't give one license to do the wrong thing by their fellow enthusiasts!

When I was busy checking two inaccuracies on the Junee 1:100,000 survey map, that was a road open to the public. By the way, how often have you seen a rail access track complete with the standard Railway Crossing sign?

My drive way is open to the public, doesn't mean any and all can use it. I have seen quite a few crossing signs on access tracks and private property. Just because the sign is there doesn't mean it's open to the public.

Raichase.  Having being bitten by entire photo lines of "fellow enthusiasts" myself, I feel little sympathy.

(a) Unless a road signposted or gated, it is accessible to the public.
(b) I checked.
Your move.

Here are some previews of my collection which will be up on flickr tomorrow. What an excellent trip though! Congratulations to the RTM/Heritage Express for putting on such a successful event!


3642 storms the grade towards Shepherds Siding as rail enthusiasts (4 of them Victorian) document the occasion. - Saturday 31st August


44211 leads the transfer back to Junee as a para glider decides to race the jumbo near Harefield. - Saturday 31st August

More to come!

At least once. This one at the former Border Loop site, NSW, has warning signs, crossed arms and an octagonal stop. My guess as to the reason is the presence of a Telecommunications cable, can't remember whether Telstra, Optus or some other, along the rail corridor.

Most (heck, I'd wager on almost all of them) have the "stop" or "give way" signage. A key example would be the network access crossing at Leightonfield, on the SSFL at the Sydney end of the station. Same type of signage one would find on a public road... only inside the boundary fence.

I spent the weekend down south with a group of mates, a fantastic weekend and a fantastic event! Everywhere the loco went the people flocked to see it which can only do good for the NSWRTM and Preservation in total. Here are some of my pictures from the weekend, with more on my Flickr site. I chased from the transfer out on the Thursday as it passed through Menangle back to the Museum on the Sunday night so covered every moment of the weekend, but here are some of the best moments!
