    This FODEN prime mover is rusting peacefully off the Ripon Hills/Marble Bar road intersection, not sure of the trucks history.

    An old sawmill on the west side of the Daly River at the Dorisvale Crossing. These pics from 1984 when it was still pretty much intact after being abandoned during WW2.

    I shared this one from the Cadelga Outstation in the panorama thread..

    If this thread was around a few months back, I might’ve stopped more along the Connie Sue Highway. The southern end had quite a few old classics laying around.
