It would probably be more than 20 years since I photographed the Broken Hill to Port Pirie ore train, so no wonder the sun refused to come out in protest.
Pacific National loco NR6 round the curves at Huddlestone, South Australia, on 1 December 2016, with train 5455 which carries lead and zinc ores from Broken Hill to the smelter at Port Pirie.
It is a shadow of its former self these days with the 6000 tonne trains of the past long gone, and on this occasion with only 21 loaded ore wagons in tow.
