And a few more shots for a Thursday

You have to love holidays. Got my jobs done around the house, fitted in some study and even tidied up the house a bit to stay in the good books with the wife and all before 2 pm. With the sun out I decided a quick chase was in order, so I headed out the door and managed to catch one of my favourite services, 922 Dunedin - Middleton freight as it crested the Tumai bank. Main south line regular DFT 7023  was on point in its re-branded Toll Rail livery with DXB 5016 formerly of the North Island providing assistance. 

DFT 7023 and DXB 5016 lead 922 Dunedin - Middleton freight at Tumai. 1/11/12.

And a close up shot.

A quick trip north and I caught up with 922 at the Goodwood Road crossing as it made its way into Palmerston. 

With horn blasting and ditch lights flashing DFT 7023, DXB 5016 and 922 approach Goodwood Road crossing just south of Palmerston yard.

Not bad for an hours work. 

And that's about it....
