The Overlander

It was quite an early start, but we set off from the Pensione Hotel to Southern Cross Station where we waiting until boarding The Overlander.  We'd paid extra to get the Red Service, which afforded us good leg room, and as it turns out a not very crowded carriage.

Eventually we set off through the outskirts of Melbourne heading towards Geelong.  The train staff came around and collected orders for breakfast which was great.

It was a long day, but we were so thrilled to have done the journey watching the scenery pass by and having a few laughs with fellow passengers and the railway staff.





One of the great vistas was the Canola growing - vast acres of brilliant yellow fields.  Wonderful views and almost magical.

We took plenty of photographs - though many marred by the reflection from the train window.
