Remembering Transwa's Ravy run

Tomorrow, Thursday 26 December, at 1145 the last Transwa service will depart Albany for Ravensthorpe. Yesterday I had hoped to photograph the penultimate departure, but the Tuesday service didn't run. Here's a look back to a few years ago to when some 'erbert drove this service whilst working for R...

Bolton-wise perhaps - but whilst you're over east, it would be great if you were able to meet up with the owner of the preserved St Ives Royal Tiger Cub / Comeng. See the last photo in this thread.
