Comeng shooting onto the Moonee Ponds Creek bridge underneath a Tullamarine Freeway offramp.

See the concrete end of the bridge, and the ground rising up to the wire fence? I usually stand up there. Awesome spot with a good view straight down the line, but fuuuuck, when trains go by on the closest track, it feels a little too close to the action. Especially when it's a steam train doing a good speed. I was filming it, and when it swapped from the third track to the closest track, you can hear me mutter "oh ... god!"

Last e-mail I got from her was on Tuesday. You heard from her since?

Yep, my 58,000th post was unintentionally funny too. Here it is, complete with Chass's previous post for context.

Sweet shot. It does look as though you'd be pretty fucking close.

Thanks.

Do wish there were some sunlight on the train, but you can't get everything, and I'm just glad I didn't totally blow out the sky. I have this tendency of losing too much detail from it.

Hmm, this is weird. She was definitely at work Tuesday, as evidenced by the e-mail I have from her. I'm tempted to send a text message to her mobile phone ...

Here's an arrival that got me way too excited. I heard on my scanner that an incoming Air New Zealand domestic flight was told to look out for incoming A330 traffic from the north and I was jumping around out of excitement.

Speaking of that sort of thing, here's a train that excited me. I was perfectly calm as I photographed it, but once it was gone, I did a little jig on the spot. There are actually TWO rail bridges over the Moonee Ponds Creek; one is much higher and is a flyover to the Craigieburn/Albury line. These two S class locomotives suddenly trundled across, just got out of sight, trundled back again, cue jig from me, then returned a few minutes later with a freight train that I videoed.

Here they are running back.

Here's the locos on their first cross of the bridge. Unfortunately, I was only just getting to the spot, so I had no time to set up or anything, I just whipped out the camera. This is probably the best photo I got. Sure, the pylon chops off the front of the loco, but at least it illustrates what a maze of bridges and pylons the spot is.
