Information needed


This is a request for information from the many railway enthusiasts out there on the Net. This photo is from the Australian Railway Historical Society (NSW)’s collection and a couple of people have given their opinion re the location.

The full sized photo is at

One view is that it may be “Clyde Engineering Sheds, Sydney, NSW”. Another site visitor commented that  “I do not think this is Clyde Engineering, I spent twenty five years working at Clyde, I think it maybe Tullochs of Rhodes…RD”

Another treat for the rail buffs

Newcastle Flyer

The Peter Sansom Collection

We were delighted to receive a disk of high resolution photos from Mr Peter Sansom the other day. These feature the Newcastle-Broadmeadow rail line and contain some wonderful images of Newcastle, its harbour and, of course, its railways. There are some important shots of the section of the line that was recently removed before and after the removal.

We have uploaded this highly interesting set of photos to the Peter Sansom Collection on our Flickr site.
