Benching with Schnitzel (Aussie freights)

Recommended Posts

@Schnitzelyeah I spotted that! Few familiar names through there haha

How do you go about tracking the schedules on these? I wanna start flicking my local freights but can't seem to pin point run times

took these about 20 minutes ago.

 

 you'll note a lot of similar pics from last week. Think I need to start catching different lines ion certain train on the timetable will always be the same wagons which majorly sucks balls.

 

 to spice things up tried to get to another spot where I could cath other side but train whihc was at walking pace in this spot sped the fuck after the next bend and I missed it.

Way to level up grabbing both sides of a moving train.

 

Assuming that's a nod to Herby on that MTWO car.  If so quite a sight to see international fr8 respect.

Saw a great one as I was driving on Sunday in bloody moss vale between CBR and Syd (was in BS bushfire smoke and running the other way so I had no chance of catching it).

 

Was by Zion and had santa and a reindeer on either side. Looked like he'd had time to spend on it. Would lover to see a flick if anyone has it.
