Thanks for visiting my site. I hope you find it informative, interesting and worth your trip here. :-) Please don't forget to click "refresh" on each page of the site for the most updated version of the page.

What's NEW?

Latest photo gallery uploads includes images of recently scanned photos I have taken over the years of QR National/Arizon Clyde/GM 1700 class locos. There's not that many I'm afraid, but I'm sure I have more photos around and will put them up as I find them. Also just added, new photos I took just recently on the 29th June of Laidley Station. Finally, I have added a new ICE Units gallery and updated the Brisbane Suburban Units and Rollingstock - Past and Present galleries.

Latest video uploads includes footage I took of Brisbane Suburban Units being transferred, for maintenance work, via diesel loco, through Riverlink Shopping Centre to North Ipswich Workshops. Also rail action on the Toowoomba line at Karrabin featuring Plasser Track Maintenance Machine MMA67, a coalie and the Brisbane bound Westlander service, taken on the 17th October 2019. Don't forget too to check out the footage I took and uploaded earlier this year of my visit to the Gold Coast and the Gold Coast Light Rail network on the 28th February 2019. Enjoy :-).

What's this site about?

First of all and probably most obviously, this site is NOT the official site of Aurizon, Queensland Rail, Pacific National or any other rail corporation whether it be in Queensland or 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.
