Finally it has happened, the outside of the shed has received a coat of paint. It has taken a few weeks on and off to get it done and now looks good. All the eaves have been boxed in so unless I accidently leave the door open one night, that should be the last you will hear of possum problems.
Tomorrow Saturday I will be travelling to Newcastle to join 3237 on a return trip to Singleton. We have around two hours there for lunch, rejoin the train and then back to Newcastle, rejoining an intercity train back home. There will be a group of 5 of us to enjoy the day. Thankfully tomorrow the temperature will be lower than the 40c temperatures Sydney has had today.
I just remembered that I opened a Flickr account some time ago to put "overflow" photos of the layout onto. Rather than troll through the blogs I have put them up on Flickr. There are now a total of 147 photos of South Coast Rail with 74 photos added today.

Interesting with the current talk of the cracked gears in the 44 class I noticed some photos of the Eureka 60 class from 2007. How time flies!! And after enduring seven winters and summers in the shed it still operates.
