The Goldfields Railway

The Victorian Goldfields Railway

Sandra and I spent a great weekend at Castlemaine where I had set out to capture a few nice shots of the “Gold Train” as it made its 17km journey from its home station at Maldon.

Unaware of the event we got to Maldon Station too late to see the start of an onboard reenactment of Murder on the Orient Express, but after the excursion
the train made a run to Muckleford Station with a photographer and two actors aboard to create a promotional brochure for the Goldfields Railway.

By driving along the old bush track that follows the line we finally arrived at the perfect setting to capture the train passing over a viaduct.
I needed enough elevation to oversee the line so I parked close to viaduct and climbed onto the roof of my car, (not recommended).

I don't know which looks the more precarious Mark - you on top of the car or the train on that raised, rickety, wooden track. Fascinating shots.
