The SGAL team headed North from Melbourne to travel to Brisbane, and there were many diversions to do and Railways to see. MY hightlight was thevisit to GMR, whuich was operating for themselves. But We found them to be a very welcoming people and we got a ride. We spent 3 hours at least there ( 3 hours we should have got to Brisbane !)

- it was worth it. What got me was their friendliness and spirit. I will be sending a donation "soon" !

A Trike comes over the bridge after doing a inspection run.
The trip on the trike was exceptional.The bush closed in alot - is there track there, I am assured by our driver there is , as we come on it.
The views were great as we climbed and climbed, cannot wait to hear 1919 up these grades!
