Timeless Train

This train lies off the Dampier to Karratha Highway near the 6 Mile rail turnoff. It’s sitting near a railway museum that doesn’t appear to be open very often but all the old machinery is still viewable. When I first saw this train I was driving home from work at sunset and it was silhouetted against the light. When I tried to get near it with a couple of friends from work we ended up getting stopped by a train carriage inspector who was worried we would walk out onto the train line. He kindly escorted us up to it to take a couple of shots before he had to head back off to work. I like the way the colours still look bold after years out in the heat and weather.
