Wake In Fright - Tiboonda

I've just read in Australian Railway History that the real name of Tiboonda was Horse Lake.

It was a filling point for the Emergency Water Trains that supplied Broken Hill.

It explains the removed and decommissioned Y shaped Siding that appears in the opening shots.

Trains entered the Broken Hill side Arm of the Y and were filled with Water there.

They then continued into the Base of the Y and were then shunted back onto the main line via the Menindie side Arm of the Y and returned to Broken Hill with the Engine at the front of the Cars.

It's in the dead Centre of the Shot. With Broken Hill to the Upper Left of the image the extra Vegitation shows they must have spilled a lot of Water during filling.

Straight 8

I just bought and watched the DVD.

There's a late 20's early 30's Car with a Straight 8 in the early part of the Film.

DVD..

I can't believe it. THAT'S the video I was gonna offer to copy for you. I'm wearing my video out, might have to look for the DVD. I've watched it heaps. I love it.
1. The railway.
2. Shades of Puffing Billy.
3. Journey of A Nation.
4. On Time...etc...

On a scale of 1-10. I'm about a 3-4. I'm not hugely into trains, but as I said, I love a good train doco...

Would you be interested in a small softcover book
"Illustrated Guide To Classic British Locomotives"..?

I'd be happy to send it to you.

........Tim.

A Steam Train Passes

Thanks for the offer Tim.

I think "A Steam Train Passes" is my favourite. I met Dean Semler (Dances With Wolves) who shot it and David Haythornthwaite who directed, so it has even more personal significance than 3801 being the NSW Rail Flagship.

I bought the DVD from the Rail Museum at Central Station in Sydney.

Offer,,

Yeah, that "A Steam Train Passes" one's a bewdy.
I'll look out for a DVD copy, might search the net.

If you'd like the book, it's your's. I have a few DVDs of other train stuff you're welcome to (not as good as the Aust Train one). I don't want anything for the stuff, I won't do anything with it. Happy to see it go to a good home. Even if you watch it once, then pass it on.
If you're interested, send me an e-mail:
hrambo@oldholden.com
And I'll send it off...

........Tim.
