New Flickr Image Collection of Railway Infrastructure.

I have started a collection of Railway Infrastructure photos taken at various spots around inland NSW. The photos are hosted on the flickr site.

The images are geared at giving modeling inspiration and reference especially in regards to weathering and detailing.

Some railway scenes at Dubbo - good examples of weathering.

Tankers in the yard and the old engine shed.

Love the peeling paint on the side of the office.

The railway bridge over the Macquarie - lots of variety in weathering details -all the different shades of rust and grey streaks The pump house has nice character. Makes a good home for the pigeons.

NSW in Early Winter is great - the air is crisp after rains, the sky bluer and the rustic hues come alive. Found a nice wind mill with lovely rust details. Love the matt effect of the rust on the mechanism. Wish I had my weathering powders here. This specimen is out at Narromine.

The other shot is of the shed nearby - love the greys in the corrugated iron, the hoops and the rust details.
