I have started to 'manually' upload pics from the Stawell WebCam from last night
as the Gheringhap Site is currently not being updated.
This means they won't all be in 'real time' , it depends on when I'm available to upload them.
I didn't bother to do it before, as I was hoping that Flickr would bring the
"upload by email" feature back, or the Railpage hack would come into action.
Not that you are missing much, some days we only see 1-2 trains in daylight hours.
Without being too political, every year there are less and less trains.
In 2013, when I moved up here, you pretty much had 4 trains in the morning, 2 at lunch
and 4 in the afternoon....then the numerous night trains.
Thursday night was the busy night, with 12 trains scheduled between 2100-0600,
in fact with late runners and extra wheats, it could be upto 16 trains through.
Now the typical Thursday night sees only 5 trains.
In fact the Stawell WebCam has just had its 8th anniversary, it started on August 13 2011.
The poor old $150 camera has been out in the 44c heat, the -4c cold,
belted with wind, rain and hail, and it's still going.
It's only been turned off once, when it got moved......in fact the camera / laptop combo
have been on continuously for the whole 8 years, apart from the odd power outage !
Meanwhile a NR-AN just went through in the rain at 1206 on the up steel........
