“The West Coast Wilderness Railway, Tasmania is a reconstruction of the Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company railway between Queenstown and Regatta Point, Strahan. The railway is significant because of its Abt system to conquer the mountainous terrain through rainforest, with original locomotives still operating on the railway today. Now operating as a tourist experience with a focus on sharing the history of the Tasmania’s West Coast, the original railway began operations in 1897 as the only link between Queenstown and the port of Strahan.”
With the opportunity to shoot a re launch campaign with Red Jelly for the West Coast Wilderness Railway in early 2014, Nick went back to his HEC diesel fitting roots on the West Coast. A truly rugged and spectacular journey, there was no lack of beautiful locations to help showcase this iconic experience.
