The Cockle train

Hi All
 I went to photograph the Cockle train in Victor Harbor and see the hopefully
see a majestic south Australian steam locomotive in action but unfortunately
due to the fire bans they used some diesel railcars (redhens i think?) and
a passenger coach in the middle.

An unusual paint scheme on 412 
and even more unusual on the other side
and 428 on the other end
Till next time

P.S. just photographed 621 on the cockle service will upload
 pictures ASAP
