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?

Finally and not before time, a new name for the site! 'Colin's Railways of Queensland Photo and Video Collection' to reflect that, in fact for many years now, I have been sharing videos I have taken as well as photos on this site.

Speaking of videos, latest video added is footage from my car's dashcam, of an Aurizon hauled coal train and Brisbane suburban unit crossing the Walloon level crossing on the Toowoomba Line. 25 Sep 2017.

Latest photo gallery additions, (under Infrastructure and Signalling section) features images and the story of my old decommissioned mimic board from Eudlo which I have had for years but finally restored to working scenario order with huge help from my good friend Frank Tybislawski. Thanks so much Frank! Also under Infrasctructre and Signalling a new gallery featuring my numerous visits to Spring Bluff Station, on the Toowoomba Line. Enjoy! :-)

What's this site about?

DEL 2828

First of all and probably most obviously, this site is NOT the official site of Aurizon, Queensland Rail, Pacific National or any other rail corporation whether it be in Queensland or Australia, nor is it affiliated with any particular rail preservation, tourist or historical group. What this site is however, is a central point from where I can share photos, videos, links to rail related organisations and a little information of the current state of railways in Queensland, courtesy of rail tragic and author Arthur Shale. Trusting you find something here of interest.

Copyright Note: As always, copyright of each image or video remains with the owner. Provided relevant acknowledgement of ownership is given, permission is given for any image or video to be downloaded, shared or embeded for personal use and use on any personal or non-profit organisation's web site or social media page.

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 friend Dean Stalker with his input and advice on the site's design and site hosting!
