Gary, nicely done.
I remember the old coal-steam, engines we were 2 houses away from my home in Springfield Ill., lived there in '46 and in '49. In '46 we watched the troops coming home from WWII, and being 2 houses awayknew that whistle and horn blow'nall day long, they were the old steam engines. Then there was theGreen Diamond deilsel. Those werethe Days My Friends. Memories...
Thank you, Richard. I appreciate the comment. And I'm glad the footage brought back memories for you, RadJoe. The '40s, huh? That's going back a bit. I grew up near steam trains as well during the 50s and 60s. Have you ever seen kids emerge from a storm water drain? That's what we did... riding our bikes along the storm water drain that ran underneath the marshalling yards where all the locos needing maintenance were kept. Rats everywhere, and the ever present threat of a sudden downpour, which would have drowned us as well as the rats. Our parents thought we were all at choir practice. Hehe.
Gary Kelly, Sorry I forgot to ThankYou, it was a real pleasure watching your excursion a second time. I am saving it, and sending it to daughter. She never got toAustrailia, but went to Austriatwice. It was a wedding and visit.The more I read of Austrailia, the I love your country and your writings. Thanks Again. Her loveof wanting to get to your Country,is the reason she named her daughter Sydney.
