Here's a small selection of my shots from today:
The rain is rapidly approaching as N459 races 8220 up Warrnambool pass towards Melbourne between Manor and Werribee
NR25 in the Indian Pacific livery hauling MA8 down Overland between Werribee and Manor:
The rain has well and truly arrived as P11 and P13 run 8281 push pull service through Little River
I have almost forgotten what rain like this looks like, but yes I was crazy enough to get out of the car and grab this shot of N462 with 8264 between Lara and Little River
The rain has now eased by the time I took this shot of P16 leading 8237 as it approaches Lara:
The dark clouds are still hanging in the sky as N457 and N468 depart Lara with 8268 up push pull service
The sun is finally emerging as P13 and P11 race towards Little River with 8288 up pass:
Although there didn't seem to be quite as much flying around today when compared to 2007, it was still an interesting diversion while waiting for the next train. Any plane gunzels on here who might be able to identify what this is?
Finally, the sun is fully out as P16 leads 8815 empty cars away from Lara:
Unfortunately it didn't last long. The light is already fading rapidly on this shot of NR75 and NR114 with PM6 near Lara as the storm mentioned by wongm approaches.
