Noel,

At first I thought that these look like the Port Pirie to Peterborough
afternoon service but then that used to run late in the evening and would
probably during the dar most of the time. The earlier train was a school
service to Gladstone but that had a trailer or two as well. So put us out
of our misery plesae, which train is it and where is the second shot taken
- Caltowie? or maybe Crystal Brook? Hmm on reflection (translated as I
studied the background) it is neither of those, maybe Warnertown?
