Want to run a railway?

Abt locomotive on West Coast Wilderness RailwayIn Tasmania for talks I met Tim Ambrose who looks after IT for the Federal Group resort complex. I said I would like a ride on their vintage steam train and he said would I like to run the whole railway, as they needed a manager.

The West Coast Wilderness Railway is a narrow gauge line using the Swiss Abt system to get it up steep hills. I my next trip to Tasmania, I hope to do a live Internet report from the train, wireless broadband permitting.
