Yep, but I can’t see any tracks across the road. I wonder what’s going on with this?

Edited:

Hang on, I can see some tracks off the right hand side of the road. I’d venture to say this pic is taken inside a big rail freight hub and the road is not a public road. There used to be a similar set up with rail tracks (probably not used in 60 or more years) going into what used to be one of the large military stores areas in Sydney.

There's more than a few places here in the UK where rails cross or even run along major roads, with no more than light controls.
IMO anyone getting squished deserves it for failing to pay attention...

Looks to me like HO models... I could be wrong, I know that is a crazy wild statement. My wife told me the other day that I am never wrong... wives lie, but she's a keeper. Wink

It's the real thing: Gisborne NZ.

The Grumman Avenger belongs to the Gisborne Aviation Preservation Society.

I don't actually know much but I'm not bad at Googling. Very Happy

I think you’ll find that it’s a train enthusiasts opportunity to ride a steam train with period carriages mate...we have then here in Australia as well. Those that run these trains obviously have to bid for track time on the everyday system, or search out disused lines that they can refurbish and bring back online for these trains to use. Sooo, I’m going to hazard a guess at saying this is an old disused train line that the enthusiasts have recovered and put to good use...although this pic is no doubt staged to show a period type meeting of train and plane.
