    Following on from the "Sneak Preview", I've now got the full piccies. A little dissapionted actually. They were taken with a "StyleCam" digital camera. Pretty basic one. No focus, aperture, or shutter adjustment. "point & click" type of camera. Only adjustment is flash/no flash/auto flash. The flash was not used for the pics. They were also taken at the highest resolution. No macro/closeup function. The pics themselves are OK, but the quality is a bit crappy. I also fiddled with the "focus" function of my photo editor.

    A goods service awaits clearance to depart Garahbara. Circa 1922. It's actually a IHC Mogul (not found on Australian railways, but never mind!:eek: )

    The goods service has departed! Many many of these wooden guard's vans (cabooses) were made and use for more than 90 years on the Victorian Railways.

    Hi Woodie,
    Those photos are very good, just needed to be a little sharper perhaps but the colour isn't far off. Anyway, they show a very good Railroad Modeller with some excellent looking scenery.

    Boppa,

    The lighting was the best I could do at the time. It was only a pretty basic camera. No cables either, so couldn't do the "instant" thing. The pics on the website were taken with Purple's (Toni) from SSSF camera. A much better camera, using the same lighting.

    A sample of what a better camera can do.
