12-1. K161. Korong Vale.


12-2. T342. Sea Lake.


12-3. Nandaly. Well, it could be any railway station in the Wimmera-Mallee region of Victoria, actually. They all looked the same.


12-4. T342. Nandaly-Kulwin. It was a bad drought year and sand was everywhere covering the rails. Wind chutes along the track, meant to protect the track from wind-blown sand, afforded little or no protection.


12-5. T342. Kulwin. It was dusk by the time we arrived.


12-6. T342. Kulwin.


12-7. T342. Sea Lake.


12-8. J513. Buckrabanyule.


12-9. J513 & 64RM. Buckrabanyule.


12-10. J513. Buckrabanyule.


12-11. K161. Korong Vale.


12-12. Korong Vale. WW77. Victorian Railways’ coaches didn’t get much more interesting than this. Imported for the new Melbourne-Adelaide Service in the 1880’s, this coach spent its last years as a Workmen’s Sleeper for the Rail Relaying Gangs that used to travel the state. I last saw it derelict at the Sandhurst Goldfields Tourist railway in the early 1990’s.
