Return of the Auditor

Back in this post, we described the role of safety auditors in our operations, and posted a few pictures that were taken by one of them. We’ll she’s back… and this time we were able to put her to good use. After the official part of the audit, we had a couple of charter trips to do, both of which started and ended at different locations. So with this handy additional resource hanging around, we were able to use her to relocate our crew vehicle from one town to the next. As a bonus, it gave her the opportunity to get ahead of the train and snap off a few pictures.  Some of them turned out okay, so over the next few posts, we will feature some of the better ones.

The first set is from a charter between Mt Surprise and Almaden, that was run for Outback Aussie Tours for the fun over 50 group. These charters are run as single car units, which are not as photographically appealing as the normal two car sets, but when taken by someone that knows their way around a camera, some great shots result anyway.
