COAL TRAINS





COAL TRAINS, originally uploaded by cnlizziebns.

The empty coal wagons going up the mountain and the full wagons bringing the coal down to the coast and the Port of Brisbane from the huge seams of coal from the Acland Mine on the Darling Downs, Queensland,

This engine was pulling 41 wagons of coal.

They are unreal. I remember seeing them at Blackwater. I read one was 2.5 k long.

Diane,

I love the sounds of a train ..was the only form of transport when I was a child living in the Gulf of Carpentaria and the association is excitement.

Regards,

Elizabeth
