To bide his time he observes mayflies resting on the rails.
In the background Roosters could be heard sounding off as the morning moves on!
Further on down the track a man, and woman walk the Heritage Rail Trail Park while a child checks out the scenery along the way.
On this day June 18, 2015 the Steam Into History is due into Hanover Junction a little later on in the day.
