Thank you for posting these, I have recently become more interested
in Australian trains after getting used to the look of the locomotives.
Finding various videos covering Australian trains from fans in every
Australian State along with Cab Ride videos has been eye opening.
Also finding track profiles and Train schedules online makes things
more interesting.

Great series. Beautifull train in South Australia. BTW, are there railfans in Pilbara area? Very difficult to receive pictures and news from that land.

Your coverage of rail action from South Australia is much appreciated and the photographs are always of high quality. The variety, the vintage locomotives, and the ever changing ownership always amazes. It is fun to start to see more locomotive models in the Aurizon lemon yellow scheme even if it is one of the more bland schemes Down Under.

Nice series! I've watched several YouTube videos about Aussie railroading and would love to see it for myself one day. Hearing the term loop used for sidings made me wonder if there are actual siding loops until I figured out it was just the Aussie term. Lol.

The noses on those diesels look like EMD F unit noses.
