Thanks trainguy84, this trip will be to Mudgee, then Cessnock, then down to Moss Vale (via Sydney), then Rutherglen then across to Swan Hill, Mildura and back home. So I get the chance to see some of the Hunter Coal train and some action on the Sydney-Melbourne line and a few snippets in between (if I'm lucky!)
Watch out for them C class Smile

To give an indication of the length of the train (950m), when the first section was backed onto the second section (in platform 2) the locos were just south of the Sir Donald Bradman Drive road bridge!

Absolutely not.  I for one follow Pressman's weekly reports with great interest and find I quite miss it when he is (rarely) occupied elsewhere.  Even details such as which loco is doing shunting duties are of interest to me.  

Some of us were raised to stay quiet and just listen when we don't have something useful to contribute to a conversation, and that applies equally to Railpage forums.

I read it. I mostly know what's on it anyway but it's strangely reassuring to see him parked under the tree every Sunday!
