It used to be called mileage, since 1974 Australia is metric. This number is the distance from the buffer stop at Central station in Sydney. In the Up direction of course. Still at Seven Hills station.

Elizabeth Bay - named in honour of Governor Lachlan Macquarie’s wife, Elizabeth. The area was originally known by the Aboriginal name 'Yarrandabby'. I like the old name better - it had a certain ring to it.

Stephen Hawking and Quantum Mechanics as applied to train travel

About to take my journey here on a new Millennium train. Heading in the Up direction.

Hawking says: "For example, if all we know is that a train traveled from point A to point B, then it is not true that the train took a definite path and we just don't know what it is. Rather, that train simultaneously took every possible path connecting the two points."

String theory

Driving under the strings of the ANZAC bridge listening to an interview on the radio by Stephen Hawking he posits that: "At the tiniest levels all particles are fundamentally little loops of string that vibrate at different frequencies. And, if true, all matter and energy would follow rules derived from the nature of these strings."

Old bush homestead

An old bush homestead just out of Wombat, NSW.
I see the old bush homestead now
On Kiley's Run,
Just nestled down beneath the brow
Of one small ridge above the sweep
Of river-flat, where willows weep ...
Andrew 'Banjo' Paterson
