Roxy's plaque

G'day there! Thanks for visiting my site. I hope you find it informative, interesting and worth your trip here. :-) Please don't forget to click "refresh" on each page of the site for the most updated version of the page.


What's NEW?

Latest video catch is a short bit of footage of locos 2347D/2358 hauling a coal train heading down the Toowoomba Range through Spring Bluff around lunch time, 29 Dec 2016. I continue to update my photo gallery in honour of Brisbane's original suburban EMU sets. I am photographing as many as I can, before they dissappear off the system, as they are soon to be slowly replaced by the new 700 series EMU sets as they come on line. Any, constructive feedback welcome.


What's this site about?

DEL 2828 First of all and probably most obviously, this site is NOT the official corporate site of Aurizon, Queensland Rail, Pacific National or any other rail related organisation in Queensland or Australia and is NOT affiliated in any way with any of these organisations. What this site is however, is a central point from where I can share the photos and videos that I have taken over the years, in connection with any part of Queensland's Railways and to share some history and current rail related news.

It is a place I hope where, in my own small way, I can contribute to the preservation of the history of Railway's in Queensland, by way of images and videos that can be shared with everyone. Included on this site, is a page with a little about Queensland's Railways and its history, links to articles on how railway related things work, a Links Page, and of course the Photo Gallery, the Video Gallery and the latest rail news Australia wide courtesy of Australia's ABC network.

Copyright Note: As always, the copyright of each image remains with the owner. Provided acknowledgement of ownership is given, (PLEASE ask as a courtesy) any image may be downloaded for personal use and used on any personal and non-profit organisation's web site.

Feel free to comment, or make a CONSTRUCTIVE criticism of this site. I assure you I am far from being a railway expert! If you believe I have made an error with any information anywhere on this site, please let me know. Just click on 'e-mail me!' on the menu bar and drop me a line.


For their valuable assistance in the creation and continued maintenance of this site, a special thanks goes to my good friend Arthur Shale with his extensive knowledge of Queensland Railways and my good friends Jenn and Kerry for their input and advice on the site's design!
