Matilda has finally arrived in Sarina, approx 1,000 kms north of Brisbane.

The day has been fairly overcast and rainy as we have been feeling the edges of 2 ex tropical cyclones.

Anyway the weather has not detered things, although when Matilda arrived there was a PRETTY STRONG SMELL OF COW.

It was decided that Matilda would have to go to Wallys Wagon Cleaners before she could be presented at the North Yorks Motive Power Depot.



After being dealt with in the cleaning shed she was brought out by the Get Wagons Ready shunter.

She was then positioned ready for the heavy lifting gear as quite a bit of pongy stuff was ready to be removed.



 

As you can see there was quite a bit to shift.



So a sweet smelling and spruced up Matilda finally emerged from the tunnel between Grosmont and the MPD.



Where she was brought through the admiring throng of preserved locos.



and finally she was again placed under the control of the Get Wagons Ready loco to be made ready for her trip over to Western Australia.




So get ready Marty she is leaving tomorrow morning.

No problem Mike.
I had absolutely no idea what to do until I saw your pic of the cow.

Regards,
John.

Brilliant John. :thumbs:thumbs

Love "Wally's", the straw and the "proper" name for that over-wide railway they built to Cornwall !!  :cheers:cheers

The effe=ort that has gone in down there is amazing - even including building a cleaning shed - and I offer a toast to our "down-under" members :cheers:cheers:cheers.  (Or, are you the members and we're the "up-over" ones ? - I'm going before I get confused again)

I don't want to stir anything but the UK has a long way to go to match the Aussies when it comes to story telling and making the journey interesting.

Hmmm, well I'm back in town, Tropical Cyclone Magda was a "fizzer" and SES sent me home early.
So, if she gets in the post tomorrow, Tuesday, she might get here on Thursday? We shall see. Either way, I fly to Melbourne on Thursday night and am back in Perth on Sunday night so there will be a slight delay here I'm afraid. Coupla days maybe, but she'll be right!
Looking forward to her arrival.
cheers

I wouldn't be overly concerned by that, Peter. She didn't really need the clean-out either because the Big Red Engine which pulled her out of the tunnel is in the livery of the Let Matilda Smell railway company. :mutley:mutley:mutley

Ha - Ha  John.  Tick VG :thumbs  I didn't think it would be, but it's strange seeing Matilda on other layouts - particularly ones I have only seen via the forum.

Don't worry too much about the slight delay Marty - she's making great progress in kangaroo land and the extra couple of days will give me a bit more time to work out the best continent to send her to after you.  Her first "Inter-Continental trip !!

Pleased "Magda" fizzled out for you. :thumbs
