The things you find.

Tonight while looking for something else, I came across this. (you will need quicktime or be running firefox to view it). Click on the photo to follow the link.

What is interesting from my point of view is the film of the shunting at Summit. I was not sure how they had rejoined the trains while removing the loco's. Also quite interesting to note is a complete lack of regard for health and safety regulations.

Having suffered some nasty fume action in the Otira tunnel due to fan failure, I can only imagine the terrible conditions experienced in that tunnel that day.
See the steam coming off all parts of the H locos as each emerges..

They were real men back then lol!
