An ore train on the way from Mt Newman Iron Ore Mine to the port of Pt Hedland .  When we drove down the rail track road last year there was one of these trains on the hour every hour. Approx 3kms long and with 2 engines up front 2 engines in the middle and 2 engines at the back they are an amazing site. We often tried counting the ore cars but always lost count somewhere around 250 270  so they probably have around 300.

Amazing to think that some of this ore will end up in maybe a car or a building somewhere on the other side of the world.

Still on Ranges and Hills

Newman-hills-

 

North East of Newman on the Marble Bar Rd you’ll find these group of flat top hills . As we went through there it was mid afternoon so I stopped and grabbed a quick hand held pano of 6 shots and then kept going. Its good area to be going thru at the right time of day as you drive thru one group of these and its nice piece of the Pilbara area of North Western Australia.
