"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

Final photo for tonight. Ken and I are steam train buffs, and together with some friends, we organised this train to come to our suburb a few years ago, as part of the local town festival. This wooden trestle bridge is the only one of its kind still in use in suburban Melbourne. Costs a fortune for the railways to maintain, but they aren't allowed to pull it down because of its historic significance.

No, this isn't Puffing Billy in the Dandenongs, Robyn. It is a vintage steamtrain belong to an organisation called Steamrail, who restore old trains and charter them for runs like this. This pic is near where I live.

oh ok... thanks, Gina - I love old steam trains - we have a 3801 that goes past our home every Sunday with sightseers - from Sydney up to the Blue Mts.

Robyn, I have been on the 3801 twice - it came down to Melbourne for a special steamtrain weekend event, and Ken and I had a couple of rides - great old train!
