22-1. Syd Gillies driving.
22-9. Note the boiler of the club’s first live-steam engine, No.12 on the left.
22-16. At the old Clubhouse. After the day’s running, the members sit around to chat, count the day’s takings and discuss all the day’s activities. The Clubhouse was an old tin shed, so cold in winter any form of heating was irrelevant, and stiflingly hot in summer made worse by the mosquitoes which made opening any windows or doors unthinkable. You had to be dedicated.
22-19. X35. Glenroy. Down Albury/Shepparton Pass.
22-20. R749. Glenroy. It was an all air-conditioned carriage fan-trip.
22-21. Glenroy. Note the GY wagon far centre-right. There were a few sidings at this location and unusually, the only wagon turntables, which were just large enough to hold a four-wheeled wagon, I had ever seen in Victoria. They were once a common feature on early railways, their purpose was to move wagons on to track at too sharp an angle to be accessed by points.
