Defies belief in this day & age, type of thing you would expect to see in India not Austalia.

I can feel the atmosphere, and am amazed at the crowded carriages, as well as the flimsy-looking bridge. The coach seems to have stopped to give people the chance to watch the train as it passes over the bridge. From your viewpoint, obviously from the carriage, you have a lovely sweep across your frame, lots of smoke and steam, and a wonderful blue sky. You waited until the train went over the bridge to take this shot, along with several others, and I enjoyed it so much that I give it a GEA.
