Nice series. I like how the second trailing unit in photo one almost looks like a "B" unit for the first. Your photos always prompt me to take a trip to wikipedia and google maps to explore the area.

Nice pics! 
I was lucky enough to be on the Indian Pacific's 50th which was quite an experience - I got some cool pics, including some of the drone pics - you can see some of them here but happy to post more!
