    Hi Rob, in Macho Northern Territory, Vespas were looked down on and in the early days the roads were too rough to ride on. Now that the roads are better there are lots of Scooters on the roads. Regards Ray

    Neat stuff. I remember visiting a similar site near Aberdeen Scotland several years ago.

    If you use the link tool in the editor, the URL s a bit less scary. Quantas Collection

    Hi Tom, the large Steam Traction Engine in photo 5 from top came from Woolner Station where my mate was a Buffalo Shooter. I will post the photos of him in the Steam Traction Engine. Regards Ray
