    Just a random collection from in and around the Inveresk Railyards in Launceston, Tassie. This area is now home to a bunch of Uni of Tas schools, including my Architecture building :)

    All with the GH2 and 14/f2.5 ASPH

    Hi Nick,
    Thanks for posting those, particularly as they were taken with the 14mm lens, just a shame there's not an engine or freight car in sight, just some reminders of what was, the overhead travelling crane and presumably the site of a former round house.

    Hi Barrie, yeah there's not much left of what was here... I remember walking around the complex as a kid (before it was redeveloped) and it was like they'd just walked out - tools and everything lying around...

    Now it's a bit different. There's the architecture school, as well as a fine arts school, performing arts school and the regional museum. There's still a few locomotives kept in the museum area but that's about it!

    The architecture building is quite interesting. It was an old diesel locomotive workshop (hence the cranes) and it had been heritage listed, so when it was refurbished a lot of the original stuff had to remain, so at the moment you can actually climb into the crane-drivers box from the computer labs :)

    Cheers, Nick
