    As a pass-on from this thread, I was given the amazing opportunity to photograph the insides of the MV Baragoola NSW. Sydney's last remaining and partly operational Manly ferry. Built 91 years ago, she was converted from steam to diesel electric in the mid 1900's which has all remained the same since installation. The sheer size of engines and control equipment is overwhelming.

    Im not all familiar with photo editing, so please dont mind the editing, Id like constructive criticism on the shots though. Please note, I posted the EOI if anyone is interested on an outing to the ship please come along!

    Not in favour of the first two, but the B/W is quite befitting of the ship.
