As part of the Geoff Cooke tour, I had a wonderful time at Sandstone last week, I took some photos as usual.  Please find a small selection attached.

My thanks to all that made this possible, especially to Gert and Hester and their teams, They had everything running as smooth as a well oiled machine.

Best regards
Hannes Paling

I thought that our Sandstone 2010 visit with the Cooke party was one of the best, if not the best, photographic session I've had there. Gert and Shaun and the loco guys kept everything very brisk and business-like (always out on the line ready for the photos well before dawn, etc etc), and Aidan McCarthy marshalled the photographers very well and took full advantage of props like tractors, buses and oxen for the photos: well done to all, I say.
