$5 500 for the 3AG bogies (not  th ...

[quote=TomBTR]I admire your sentiments Alex. However you are assuming that the Liberals are stupid. Obviously they are saying that black is white and hoping that people will believe it long enough for ...

Let's have a crack at the Cudgegong River bridge at Munna on the Mudgee line (or more technically correct, the Gwabegar line).

Something looks familiar from an old image in one of the RTM calendars ...

The old Coal and Allied washery sidings adjacent to Hexham station.

There's something about those power poles next to the railway corridor that I can't quite put my finger on. Hmmmm...
