G'day all

TheLoadedDog™ has given me the honour and privilege of kicking off the Cryptic version of the Where Is It quizs. So, I shall start with the first one....



Clue: The South Line goes through here.

And abiding by the previous specifications of this quiz, this pic is taken within the Suburban area, within a 40km radius of Central on a majorly busy corridor.

The mad bugger who started this thread has done so before bleary-eyed TLD™ here could work out that I thought that pic might be a bit difficult. However, with the clue he's given, I hope it's about just right.

This is an experimental work. I hope we all have a bit of fun, and thanks to Maikha for kick-starting it, because I don't even have the material yet.  This thread is to have fun, so just bear in mind the following:
1. Keep it Sydney suburban
2.  Go apes**t with doctoring the photos digitally, but the more you do so, the more obvious the original subject needs to be.
3. Have fun, and bear with us as we get this thing going.


Oh yes, and I know the answer to this first pic, so I'm abstaining.  Thanks again to Maikha for stepping up to the plate so soon (I'd have been days getting it going).

Just to clarify:

20kms is good.  You can take photos of anything in those rail corridors (don't have to be track or trains). Use your common sense and sense of humour. As indicated in the other thread, a dunny door etc is fine. Heck, you can take a photo of a (willing) CityRail employee's face for all we care. The stray dog at Erko. Whatever. It's not got hard and fast rules. It's fun.

'scuse us guys, Maikha and I are just hitting one another over the head with novelty rubber chickens.  Very Happy

We'll make it the area bounded by Waterfall, Macarthur, Emu Plains, Berowra, etc. (or  I out of date?).  If you can catch a dunny-less tin can to it from Central, it's in.

Agreed, Maikha? Very Happy

I know the answer, I know the answer. Its a Vset roaring through the south line, somewhere in the suburban regions of the network.

Am I right?

Clue: The South Line goes through here.

Westmead?

ie "South" Line being the southern of the running lines rather than the route commonly known as the South line.

I think he ment the route commonly known as the South line, which is a bummer for me... Umm is it... Uhh It could be... I wonder what the carrage number is...

Ka-Ching! Correct!

Taken at Flemington Markets 100m East of the platforms, but off the goods line.


I must have given too many clues!  Embarassed
How did you get it Sparkie?

P.S. Sparkie's turn for a weird cyptic photo.

The track arrangements. That and the mention of the South line to narrow it down.

As per my new standard procedure I will give my turn to Wesley, as my scanner is out of action and I have no digital stuff in Sydney.

Ill PM him.

Oh, and just a suggestion: Can Maikha change the title to:
Sydney - Where is it CRYPTIC VERSION to avoid confusion?

Pete

Thanks Pete.

Photos - 20km radius...  I need to take my camera out with me more often!!

Try this one, unadulterated and certainly if not within 20km it is within the metropolitan area:

Concord West Question
  Blackadder Chief Commissioner

I was gunna say Epping just near the M2 underpass but sandown has done it so...

Mt Colah?

I still don't really understand the difference between this and the the other Where is it?  Is it just that it is Sydney area only (thus excluding Chris Nelson's wonderful historical pics?)  But give me a chance and I'll come up with the pics!

Tis Epping, just on the northern side.  Underneath the photo is an underpass.  This was one of my fisrt attempts at getting my wife interested in trains.  We were waiting for 3801 to come through (timetabled 4.20).  We saw this XPT, the Armidale/Moree Xplorer and a number of sparks.  At 5.10 when it was too dark to take photos and getting colder we decided to go home.  Just as we crossed over the station and drove down the shopping centre...there it comes!!  

Same thing happened on Saturday.  Drove over to Wenty to see it again, and just caught it running through the station.  So I am still yet to see 3801 running properly in the daylight (in person)!

Over to you Sandown
