What's this site about?

DEL 2828

First of all and probably most obviously, this site is NOT the official site of Aurizon, Queensland Rail, Pacific National, Watco or any other rail corporation whether in Queensland or in Australia, nor is it affiliated with any particular rail preservation, tourist or historical group. What this site is however, is a central point from where I can share photos, videos, links to rail related organisations and a little information of the current state of railways in Queensland, courtesy of rail tragic and author Arthur Shale. Trusting you find something here of interest.
