I tried to do some railfanning for you, a handful should be done uploading soon.

I might just shift over to Flickr, i've got a free pro account there.
I'm about to log into my account now to see how it's changed. Shame I didn't bring my camera's transfer cable though, so Ican't actually upload anything new.

I've been thinking of switching hosts too. I have 10GB on LiveJournal's Scrapbook - think I still have 9GB or so of that left.

Ooh, awesome.

I didn't get many pictures and they probably aren't very good, but I'm sure you'll appreciate them anyway and I'll try to get some more in Coolangatta and Melbourne tomorrow. I wish I could take out my camera and do some photography on the tarmac at Coolangatta, but since they tell you to keep your mobile phone off until you're in the terminal, I imagine they'd be pissed about a camera too.

We need someone obsessed with boats, to complement my trains/trams and Ian's planes.

Remember, cameras don't broadcast. I think they'd have a bigger problem with you stopping to do something than the camera running.

None of the Virgin flight attendants blinked when i was waving my camera around on all three flights.

Hell yeah, and perhaps a bus dork too.

I love arriving in Wellington, just for the drive from the airport to the city. Either go the long way around Evans and Oriental Bays and get the scenic trip, or go the direct way through the Mount Vic tunnel and get the Basin waiting to greet you.

Forget the drive, which is great - the approach from the north where you fly the final approach right past the city is breathtaking. And it was just a perfectly clear day when i arrived.

Awesome.

I think you got a DF/DX combo there. The trailing locomotive is definitely a DX class. Hard to tell the leading one - but if its number starts with a 7, then it's a DF. The DX is the most powerful locomotive in New Zealand apart from the EF class electrics that run between Palmy North and Hamilton.

Oh, so you think if, while I'm walking across the tarmac to the plane, I'm photographing all the planes, they shouldn't take issue with it?

I have three questions you might be able to answer, too.

1. Why do they always say to turn off electronic devices prior for take-off and landing? I can understand phones, but as you say, cameras don't broadcast. Nor does my iPod. So why do they need to go off?

2. Why on earth must mobile phones remain switched off while the plane is being refueled?

3. This truly baffled me. Yesterday in Sydney, the plane was being refueled while we boarded, and not only did they ask for phones to be switched off, but those of us who had our seatbelts on were asked to take them off and leave them off until refueling was done. WTF?

I'm not surprised. Apparently it was a long TranzAlpine train yesterday.

Here was the best should i could manage of the locos themselves, again at Arthurs Pass.
