This Morning's Outing

We had a good turnout for our first photo shoot of the year, considering it was quite a distance away from our home base, to the Workshops Rail Museum at Ipswich. We were given special concessions to enter as most of us are also RACQ members, which was a bonus.

The Workshop Museum is at North Ipswich
A staff member gave us a quick overview of the museum

The Rail Buffs enjoyed the excellent model rail display

The museum is packed with old Queensland Railway engines 
and carriages
even a mock up Tilt Train
Then we had a tour through the workshop

The Queensland Railway workshop is still a working workshop where the old engines and carriages are overhauled.

Workman demonstrated their welding skills just for us.
After both the Steam Shop and the Blacksmith Shop tours, we retreated to the coffee shop for morning tea. A great morning!
