Eels vs Peaches

It's a train day today!

This is a layout in Australia when we visited the narrow gauge show in 2009. It was in Parramatta, a suburb of Sydney.  We also saw the Louisianna Layout at that show.  It is now on permanent display in the Orlando Museum, along with the Sundance Layout.  You've seen pictures from both of these wonderful layouts. 

Parramatta is a very old town - founded in 1788.  Its name is interesting.  It means 'head of waters", "the place where eels lie down" or "eel waters".  The Parramatta Eels Rugby League chose their name from this association.  We in Grimsby named our hockey team the Peach Kings.  Do you think the eels would triumph over the peach kings? Perhaps by name alone.
