There was train at Clandulla station this weekend.
Triple Alco 44 Class locomotives (built between 1957 to 1968) pulling heritage carriages from Sydney to Kandos and return. The local with the dog told me that coal trains go through at 2 or 3 in the morning and cement trains at 4 or 5 in the afternoon so I will try to photograph a cement train one day.
This train had to stop here while the drivers did some stuff in the little shed that is the only currently functioning part of the station. They did their thing, then locked it up again, tooted the whistle and waved us goodbye as they headed back home.
Also being back at the station reminded me that I didn't answer one of Julie's questions. The iron things in my recent photo are steel rail sleepers which seem to have taken over from the wood or concrete ones.
