    oh boy Woodie - I gotta ride THAT line!
    It looks like it would be quite a ride.........

    And I did go up the spiral once, years ago when I was a lot younger, and I seem to recall there was about 4 loco's pulling (I think).

    As for the pics site, there is another one somewhere that I will try to find for you. But that site is great, have looked at that before.

    See ya at the Dawn Parade ???

    Yeah.... Digger Day tomorrow. Dawn is a bit early for me, but two up and a bevvie at the rubbidy is usually the go for me. 100,000 at the footy at the MCG tomorrow too. Dons & Pies. Pies will be done like a dog's breakfast, I reckon.
    Have a bevvie for the old diggers for me too, will ya? :)

    yup. for old time's sake I will don the gear and do the 10pm with the pipe band for the RSA at Mt Roskill, then off to "breakfast" of mince and rum.
    And I thought they had finally banned two up? come in spinner.....

    Woody - I meant to post this site too.
    You may have seen it and it isn't really the BEST NZ pics I've seen (not enough steam for me), but he appears an interesting chappie and some of the shots aren't bad. Even the Oz ones.

    It always has been, but they "look the other way" on Digger Day.

    Just about every pub has a school going today. Might pop up there and see how I go!

    Heads?? Wadda ya reckon? :D

    Knowin' my luck, I'll probably come home :( and :mad:
