I am very impressed with what has been achieved at stawell. The hd cameras look really good with the standard definition very helpful in backing up.

Congratulations to all involved in the setup. Makes me think about how useful a cam could be on the north east up here.

Yes well deserved.  Gee wouldn't be nice to have another one or two of these around the system like NE as has been stated but also on the Caulfield Line to pick up Metro, V/Line and the freights to the east and south east.

A camera on the Victorian North East or better the NSW main south would be a great option.

Victoria is now well covered from the Melbourne ports Geelong an also stawell so the west is good.

What is now needed is something on the main south for traffic south of Sydney.

Experimenting with tagging locomotives on the Stawell cam.  Notice that when you tag the locomotive the sighting appears in the sightings database. Good job.

I have also noticed (it is a little hard to miss) the images produced in Stawell make the buncam images in terms if quality rather tired.

What would it take to upgrade the camera at bunbury with the same quality as Stawell ?

Finally a thank you to the team at Stawell who have made this possible. Quite unique.

Flickr seems to be not receiving uploads by email from about 1030 this morning,
as all webcams are not updating images.

I am manually uploading the images to my site,  which works OK.

Thanks for doing the manual work.

Flickr are having another one of their hissy fits. Camera data is being processed and sent to flickr via the servers but the images are not yet displaying on flickr.  This has happened in the past and usually means the images will queue and be published at a later date.

G'day Gavin,
                 I noticed today that the time stamp seems to be 41mins fast, on the Eastward facing camera, when comparing it to the other the other two at Stawell.

Thank You to yourself and Peter, for providing an invaluable service.

Yes, we had a 2 hour power outage on Sunday and the HD camera hasn't worked since.

We are trying to find the problem, as the camera itself seems ok, but we have lost internet connectivity.
The old camera is working ok.

Fixed the time being out after a few power outages, daylight savings and change the setting so it should pick up the fourth loco.

We had yet another power outage last night, blacking out the whole town, the third one in a fortnight.

Thus nothing was recorded from 2230 when 9714 went past.

I've restarted my computers as from 0745.

The Sloane Street crossing at Stawell is being replaced on Monday 9 March 2015.

This is the crossing viewed on the Stawell WebCam.

Occupation is between 0500-1400 and 1630-1930.

I assume, the usual 'Monday afternoon procession' of
up Sand, up Overland, up Dooen and up Superfreight
will run through between 1400 and 1630.

"all concerned to note and arrange".
