I wake from a restful sleep and gaze out the window. The land is soft, green and undulating. I guess we must be near Oberon and when I see Tarana station pass by my guess is confirmed.
Soon we will be at Lithgow and start the climb past our Blue Mountains home and down to Sydney.
That's the end of the photos. It was a work day. I settle into the lounge with my computer and answer emails while magnificent but familiar country passes by.
The trip has left me hungry for more train rides. I look forward to one day doing the full 3 day Indian Pacific run to Perth and The Ghan which runs up through the red centre from Adelaide to Darwin. But I also know we are going to have to hit the road and go see those places by car.
