Eumungerie’s ‘worms’ The October edition of Australian Railway History carries an excellent article gloriously entitled Worms to the Bush by one of the doyens of railway writing — Mr Peter Neve. Reading this article has prompted me to once more veer away from the history of grain transportation on the Coonamble line to cover this possibly more attractive aspect of operations. In this blog posting I intend just covering the early period of rail car services on the line — the 23 years from to the introduction of the class DEB sets in late This favourable treatment resulted in the Coonamble branch being somewhat atypical of NSW branch lines. That is, diesel rail cars provided the bulk of regular passenger services on the Coonamble line from , until the cessation of such services during Unlike most NSW branch lines until well into the s, locomotive-hauled services were generally used only when rail cars were either not available or were anticipated to be insufficient to meet expected passenger loadings. The Coonamble line achieved this status two decades earlier. The reasons for the early introduction of rail cars on the Coonamble branch were multiple. Though not stated, the superior heating systems contained on the rail cars would have provided comfort during the quite bitter winters which could be experienced in those parts of the State. Three other good reasons existed for the use of rail cars on the Coonamble line.

Whilst Carrickbeg had a court, there was no gaol and the prision at Tinhalla was only for the temporary holding of prisioners awaiting transportation to Australia. Clonmel was the district gaol. The most recent gaol at Clonmel was built in to a design by William Robinson. It has since been demolished to make way for a new civic precinct. Only its entrance gateway has been preserved, incorporated into a new shop.
September 10 – 16, Back in Roger Wickins of Clareville had an open heart surgery to replace a faulty valve. Part of the recovery exercise regime was a daily swim. He found that it was difficult to hold his head above the water due to the scar on his chest so he shaved off his moustache and took to snorkelling. Roger says that tomato soup and snorkelling are a strong argument against a moustache.
He set about clearing up the mess. Duck diving improved his lung capacity and he often swam with a garden rake to the amusement of swimmers on the beach. In that summer alone he recycled over one hundred and sixty containers from in and around the pool together with a lot of other rubbish. Roger found a number of these bottles which he kept.

One of the reasons is its prestige which has earned it a reputation as a standout among marathons due to the fact that it actually invokes standards in order to enter the competition at all, along with a prize purse for the victors. But how did the Boston Marathon become such a prestigious event? When was it that it set itself apart from other races of its kind and draw the sort of crowd and competition that it does year after year?

The bombs were unsuccessful, and the use of internal water tanks was adopted instead. These sorts of previous roles provide the fire fighting aviation community with well built and suitably affordable airframes to modify. The well established Aerial Agriculture manufactures, like Air Tractor and Thrush in the United States have taken their proven Ag designs and turned them into extremely capable fire fighting airframes.
There is, as mentioned a large requirement for post airliner service use of airframes when they retire from passenger hauling. International companies helping out American operators are once again across Australia this fire season. All have brought some of the best fire fighting equipment fielded yet.

Mining[ edit ] One of these pastoralists, a man known as ‘Papa Cornish’, rescued a party of Aboriginal trackers from near-certain death in the early s; in gratitude, they guided him to Australia’s largest copper deposit. This led to settlements being founded with Australia’s European and Asian gold rush immigrant arrivals. It and subsequent companies operated a number of light railways  carrying ore and similar material, as well as timber for mine supports.
Cobar and many mining outskirts accommodated the miners who travelled to the area in the late s.

William Dobell lived in this house from until his death in , and became known as one of the area’s leading ‘identities’. He was born in Newcastle, where his father was a builder Robert Dobell built this house. William demonstrated artistic talents at an early age, and in the s he studied at Julian Ashton’s school in Sydney. In the s he studied in England and travelled throughout Europe, developing a style inspired by the Dutch Masters, as well as the English artist Walter Sickert and the French modernist Chaim Soutine.
He returned to Sydney in , where he acquired a circle of admirers and honed his skills both as a satirical artist and portrait painter; his work was always within the social realist direction and never abstract. Satire and portraiture were at the centre of the controversy that erupted when Dobell received the Archibald Prize in for his portrait of his friend Joshua Smith. Conservative artists, still fighting the anti-modernist battle, argued that the painting was a caricature of Smith rather than a ‘likeness’, and therefore did not qualify for the portrait prize; the Archibald Prize was, and still is, lucrative and highly coveted.
The arguments reached the Supreme Court of New South Wales, becoming Australia’s first legal consideration of artistic values, in many ways mirroring a similar modernist-conservative debate between Whistler and John Ruskin in England nearly a century before. The case was eventually dismissed, after much popular debate about the issue; the verdict was greeted as a victory for the modern movement, although Dobell was never really a modernist painter.
Dobell continued to paint his portraits until his death, was knighted, and became a venerable figure in Australian art; many of his idiosyncratic works can be seen at his Wangi Wangi house, and in nearly every gallery in Australia.
