Nice pictures. I never noticed the bright orange painted "spot markers" on the sides of the track to show clearance points.

Those spots must be fairly new. They weren't there last time I was around in Oct 2008. I'm sure I would have noticed them.

I bet that new siding will make switching a whole lot easier. It was interesting to watch them switch facing point sidings using the rail-tractor vehicle they have.

Nice shots Chris.......that scene of the 112 along with the distant water tower could
easily pass for 50 years prior if no one knew the wiser!
