Sydney Bushfires

Post  j3801 on Tue 22 Oct 2013, 12:19 pm

Hi Everyone,

As some of you may have seen on the news lately, there are major bushfires raging around the Sydney region. Please read this article to see how bad it is getting:
http://au.news.yahoo.com/nsw/a/19493045/bushfire-crisis-tuesday-high-winds-hamper-backburning/

One thing that may not have made the news yet is the fact that the ZigZag heritage railway has suffered major damage of upwards of $4 million:

I would like to say that my deepest sympathy goes out to all those who have lost something, some have lost everything, to these fires. It may be weeks before these fires are contained and the destruction from the fire is mounting fast. Whilst I am safely away from the fires there is a lot of smoke hovering over Sydney as these fires continue to burn. If we have any members on TSSH who are in Sydney, or anywhere near the disaster areas please let us know if you are safe as we all care about each other.

Justin

Thanks for the update and I trust that all simmers - of any of the major train sims - in the region are safe.
