Whilst in Junee for the Rhythm n Rail Festival, I visited Pete’s Hobby Railway for two different projects.

March 8, 2018 — Preparing for Rhythm n Rail

On Thursday, March 8, 2018, I visited Peter Neve’s property, The Roses, in Junee, NSW. This is the home of Pete’s Hobby Railway — a private railway in Peter’s front yard, with full sized steam and diesel locomotives in operation.

Usually, the photos used by Peter on his website,, are taken by Peter himself, or one of his “gunzel” rail-enthusiast volunteers.

Peter asked if I could capture a different, non-train enthusiast, perspective of his Hobby Railway, while his team of volunteers prepared the locomotives for display and operation during the forthcoming Rhythm n Rail Festival.

March 9, 2018 —

I returned to Pete’s Hobby Railway the following day (Friday March 9, 2018), but this time as the Official Photographer of Rhythm n Rail.

Nicholas Pyers, the President of Rhythm n Rail Inc, is also the Events Co-ordinator of Pete’s Hobby Railway. After the Offical Launch event of the Festival, which was held at the Roundhouse Museum, just around the corner from Pete’s Hobby Railway, the Festival’s Patron, The Hon. Tim Fischer AC, was invited to visit Pete’s Hobby Railway and have a ride of the train.
