I saw the Devil

A cartoon character is the reason why I want to go there. The first train takes more than a day and only has one stopover in the early morning hours, just in time to get a good view of the sun rising in the Outback.

A-14-368

No, I did not tinker with the image. The sky really looks that way …

A-14-369

The other way it is less spectacular, …

A-14-373

… but the train is. It is about half a mile long, …

A-14-351

… runs once a week, … and has showers on board.

A-14-387

There are faster ways to travel …

A-14-378

… but I would miss out on what lies between:

A-14-394

A-14-396

A-14-395

A-14-399

A-14-400

The town appears deserted …

A-14-451

A-14-409

A-14-411

A-14-415

A-14-428

… with the mine in the background …

A-14-434

A-14-383

… and the exception of some early morning traffic.

A-14-384

A-14-437

A-14-405

A-14-450

I return to the train …

A-14-454

… and it takes most of the day …

A-14-480

A-14-468

A-14-474

A-14-486

A-14-491

A-14-493

A-14-514

A-14-527

… to my next stop.

A-14-564

A-14-566

A-14-600

A-14-605

In the first light of the day I board another train …

A-14-609

… that takes another day …

A-14-615

… to get me to:

A-14-616

A-14-618

A-14-623

A-14-629

The next morning I fly from here to there …

A-14-646

… where I see the Devil.
