A ballast train in the Eltham area. Amazing what happens in the dead of night! Well done to Martin Bennet for getting up so early to bring this to us.

An excellent video showing how the Germans lay track. I like how the crane can travel the whole length of the train, even over the wagon couplings.
This was taken on a trip to Walhalla. The Walhalla Goldfields Railway railway is well worth a ride. Watching the rugged scenery go by you can't help admiring how they built and even restored the line.
The trip is not too long, about 30minutes each way.
