Gricers in the Mist


Taken yesterday at the Zig Zag heritage railway, near Lithgow, NSW. A gricer is a steam locomotive enthusiast, and my husband has been one since childhood. He got to ride on the footplate back up the mountain, so he won’t stop smiling about that for at least a week.

This shot was taken as they purged the boiler.

  2. Very cool 🙂
    When my 11 year old was little one of his favourite videos was Steam Across the Mountains which was about the Zig Zag Railway, it was on high rotation for several years. We did a few trips up for rides on the steam trains but eventually he moved on to other obsessions.

  3. Zig Zag! That’s one of my favourite train stations. My parents used to live in Coolah, so I had to catch a train to Lithgow and a bus from there on. I should probably add that to my ‘Train Stations I have Known’ list…
