Maybe you can correct me, but it just seems like a go-nowhere job. It's not as if a flight attendant is going to be promoted to being a pilot. You're just stuck as a flight attendant.

It works!


Nah, it's just the wanky livery. They were started to do all business class flights between Sydney and Melbourne and quickly tanked with that, and now do charter flights, I believe. They were planning to fly to Palmerston North (I think) but that fell through.

In a previous life, it ferried illegal immigrants to Nauru.

That's how I see it too, to be honest. I think the best you can hope for is interesting international routes....but that's all I see in it.

Early days with my camera. Standing under the approach to Coolangatta, in the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary carpark.

You just described a job where people get paid to fly all over the place as "go-nowhere". Someone should make some devastatingly witty comment about this, but I'm braindead.

N 456 at Spencer Street station. Note the dual gauge track in the foreground. Dual gauge track for 5'3" and 4'8.5" is pretty rare, I think because the rails are so close that it's not entirely a good idea at any decent speed. 4'8.5"/3'6" in Queensland works fine, though.

Yeah, exactly.

And Kate wonders why I told her that her current boyfriend is a no-hoper who doesn't have any prospects.

I have this terrible feeling I'm going to dream about reading the superthread and only seeing pictures of trams and trains.
