Blue Mountains postcard - Spring 2018

Post by Centralian »

There have been a few interesting visitors to the Blue Mountains that I've photographed over the last few months,
and a few locals (or thereabouts) which I've culled down to 12. Hope you enjoy.

I might note (without an image) that AAT Kings #321 the new Denning Mfg Phoenix Midi which is a regular visitor,
is now TV 9961.

Good to see Glenorie and it's colours living on.
Awesome selection. I'm impressed Stefan.
Unapologetically hate attention seeking bus pax.
