Edit 27/09
The ARHS runs two tours on the first weekend of the Carnival of Flowers. These were taken while chasing the Saturday tour to Toowoomba and the Sunday tour on its return journey to Brisbane.

Thanks for this Peter. The heaviest working I have seen, and heard, was one of the BB18.25s hauling 9 heritage, a gin and a dead 1620 between Helidon and Murphys Creek. Fortunately that year my photo spot was on the grades between the bridge and the more level track into MC. It sounded great.

Arhs were fortunate to have permision for the steamers to operate, given all the fire bans. I'm reliably told that sdsr will be forced to use diesel power for their run to Toowoomba.

Great shots Graham! I'm guessing it's a lot drier up here than below the range, allowing the steam locomotive to be used from Brisbane to Toowoomba and back.

Thanks Graham. It seemed a bit greener in the bush near Murphys Creek but Ballard seemed as dry as on the range. Also the ARHS has a rail running fire truck following the train where SDSR has in the past relied on bush fire brigades driving along roads near the railway.
