Train through Penguin

While in Penguin, Tasmania we went to photograph the towns icon (the big penguin statue). As we were taking some shots of it, we could hear a train and realised it was about 100mtrs away.. I was disappointed as I thought it was heading out of town and didn't have my camera set for it- definitely wasn't expecting to see one in motion in Tassie, especially one so close. I thought I had missed the photo opportunity until we noticed the train was heading towards us.. I raced down to the intersection (while playing with the settings) where the almost empty container train, headed by TR04 and TR08 came right past me. It was strange to see such a big train come through the centre of such a small town. Right place, right time!
