A visit to the Lithgow Zig-Zag Railway, May 2002

Mummy and daddy took us to see the steam train that operates at the Zig-zag railway near Lithgow up in the mountains.  We stayed at Mt Victoria over-night in a motel, which was fun.  And then next morning we drove to the steam train - it was just great!.    Click on the pictures below for an enlargement (about 90K).
Here's us next to the steam train!  It was called 'City of Lithgow'.  It just smelled wonderful!
The train goes over some great bridges.  Here are a couple of pictures of the main viaduct.
We started at the top of Zig-Zag, went along the top, reversed and went down the diagonal to the bottom station.  It was so exciting!
