I got to Laidley around 9.03am, and to my surprise, I could see the train coming into Laidley on my right. A mad dash to the road bridge a bit to the east of town, allowed me the first shot (with about 20 seconds to spare). After that, another mad dash down the road, allowed me to jump out of the car andget a second shot just out of town. I then back tracked a bit and headed for Grandchester. I beat him back by a few minutes and was keen for a shot coming through the lovely station, but a loaded train was in the loop (and being passed) so that was not viable. I headed towards Rosewood and got a few sde on shots.
