Chasing the Ghan - 2 boys and a train

The Blissful Boy LOVES trains, so with The Ghan passing through the town twice a week our trip to Alice Springs had to include a bit of train spotting.

We planned it carefully, driving to the south of The Gap and eating our picnic track side whilst waiting for train to appear. Once it had passed and we had waved at everyone on board we jumped in the car, and followed the train, crossing the track after it at Bradshaw drive and then racing (without speeding, honest) the train into the station. We just made it.
