R707 pays tribute to the late C.W. Holl whom I was told was a 'Big Wheel' Bendigo driver held in high regardColin Holl was the #1 driver at Bendigo. He is best remembered for his record run between Bendigo and Melbourne driving R761 in the 1980's (1986 I think it was). He was also the senior driver for the CMR/VGR when the commenced operations in 1986 and held this role until he retired in 1990. The chalking on the smokebox door of R707 is a fitting tribute to Col.
I managed to stuff up the majority of my shots (and this didn't combine well with the fact that we had no idea where we were going, where any decent photo spots were, or what we were doing), but I managed to get at least three I was happy with!You should be very happy with the second one especially.
