AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Until you pointed it out, I didn't realize this was a train. Thought it was a mural! Perfect advertising, isn't it? Happy New Year.

I also didn't think it's a tram. It's perfect for promotion tool -eye catching!

Happy New Year :)

I saw some great trams in Switzerland this year decorated as moving billboards.
Great capture.
All the best in 2013!

The artwork on the vehicle side is so nice - it almost compels riders to ride the train to sample the artwork within...
