Magnificent video! I love that country over there! Riverina, NSW.
In spite of driving on the wrong side of the road, speaking with an accent and using non-English English words impossible to understand even for the rest of the English-speaking world, and having more venomous critters than ex-convicts, Australia sure is a beautiful country. These desert train scenes are simply magnificent. Saludos, desde Colonia Centro Historico, Puebla, Mexico, DerRobMann sends...
Why are the coal wagons not loaded to capacity? Very nice footage. Pity its finished.
Great footage, thanks for uploading.
Do you know what sucks, when you are coming back from Kalgoorlie after a holiday you decide to stop over because it is getting late and stay at the Kunderdin caravan park next to the grain depot and and where the train tracks run along side Great Eastern Highway and next to the caravan park, what sucks is that every F¥€$£# hour a freight train drives past, honks it's bloody horn; MUAAAAAAAAAA, MUAAAAA, AND THE CLICKETY CLICK NOISE OF THE CARRIAGES DURING THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT! Hmm... Good sleep...
Imagine being at a boom gate when that train is approaching, do you speed across or wait...
