Welcome to the home page for my rail transport account! Here you will find a growing collection of links, etc. to a vast array of material related to rail transportation and railway modelling, some of which was previously available from the Member's FTP Archives of the long-defunct Possum Power Tank BBS.

This page caters for my dual involvement in the Australian railway scene as, firstly, a professional train driver with CityRail at Waterfall depot, and secondly as a prototype and model railway enthusiast.

There's much more to my rail account than just the images displayed on this page. The following is a list of other things to check out while you're here:

My growing collection of hypertext links to other rail-related sites.

A special collection of links relating specifically to equipment which is complient with the NMRA's Digital Command Control standards and recommended practises for model trains.

My own personal rail image and other archives, home of my Great Australian Railway FAQ.!

Check out my assortment of Railway trivia and other miscellaneous info snippets for something out of the ordinary.

My Railway Archives If you are genuinely interested and/or concerned for issues relating to railway safety, especially here in Australia, you might like to subscribe to my Rail Safety in Australia mailing list and contribute to discussions about railway safety (with an Australian focus).

CityRail Waterfall depot driver's master roster and driver's diagrams for anyone who is interested in understanding more about how our shifts, etc. work (and also as an online reference for me!).

A light-hearted look at how to identify CityRail drivers from the hand of an anonymous CityRail train crewing staffer!

If you're interested in finding out all there is to know about me, take a look at my main home page.

I am slowly converting my extensive rail data and picture archives into HTML format. With only limited time and resources, it's no easy task! In the meantime, here are two more NSW railway images to whet your appetite:

Clyde/GM Diesel-electric locomotive 42218 in the middle road between platforms 9 and 10 at Sydney Terminal Station shortly after it was repainted into the stealth mk. 4 colour scheme in June 1994.

Prior to this it had been wearing the special bi-centennial paint scheme which was applied in 1988. Other locomotives painted in the special scheme for the 1988 celebrations included 48165 and 8120.

A four car diesel railcar set, led by HPF-903 (in the original indian red and buff paint scheme) at Glenn Innes sometime in 1977. In the early 1980's the candy paint scheme became the norm.

Most diesel railcars of this generation are now out of service and are being replaced by the 'Endeavour' and 'Explorer' diesel railcars manufactured by ABB/Comeng in Melbourne.
