Your work is always a source of inspiration, Alex, so looking forward to see your entry.
... train graphics by DanMack, coding by yours truly ...It was in the late 1930's, the King of Britain, George VI, planned a visit to Canada. Canadian Pacific (CPR) and Canadian National (CNR) had the honours to 'chauffeur' the King and his entourage across Canada from Québec to Vancouver and back to Halifax, New Brunswick. CPR chose the 4-6-4 Hudson No 2850 for the journey; whereas CNR went for the 4-8-4 U4 'Confederation' No 6400 for the Royal Train. Both companies painted the steam engines and a set of carriages in blue/silver livery. The event took place in 1939 from May 17 to June 15. After the event CPR renamed their Hudsons '4-6-4 Royal Hudson' by permission of King George VI. A reenactment of this historic event can be seen in this scenery at Toronto ... Railway buffs came from far and wide to view this spectacle ...

This is the place called Mundrabilla on the Nullarbor Plains in Australia .. the nallarbor Plains is the longest straight stretch of railway in the world .. 487 km long.
Fettlers (navvies) are busy doing track repairs near this crossing loop. They will camp along side the railway line until the work is done.
All these siding used to be manned before modernization of signalling and safeworking. There would have been several houses here for railway employees at one time. They used to be supplied with groceries and other items on a special train called the Tea and Coffee train. (A shop on railway wheels). Only one house has survived which someone is still using (must be cold there as they have the fire going). The fettlers sheds where the old trolleys were kept is used just for tools. Fettlers now use road vehicles that can also be used on rail .. two can be seen in the siding.
Here you can see a Sydney bound container train waiting in the crossing loop .. it is 2 1/2 km long with 84 wagons loaded with containers. It is waiting to cross the Perth bound Indian Pacific with 20 carriages.
