As I post, the train must be underway. Have fun to all those associated with it this weekend.
Hoping to catch up with it down south at Gisborne on its return on Sunday.
Best regards...

The 8096 return trip from Castlemaine left on time, but ended up late arriving into Gisborne. They did not stop at Gisborne station but had 'pulled up' hundreds of metres before the level crossing for V Line trains to pass through. The train arrived at Southern Cross station at 17:05.
Here the shots I took on this return trip :

Terrific photographs as usual Michelle. Thank you once again for sharing.

Some overcast work on most. Did the sun shine at all during the return trip ?

Thanks Freightgate. The sun had ducked behind the clouds at the Chewton location and was out in full force at Elphinstone. The further the train made it's way back towards Melbourne, the more overcast/ordinary the weather became.
