Yarloop losses

The news is sketchy at this stage but it appears the historic timber town of Yarloop has been very badly hit by the bushfires. They say that there are very few houses left(I saw an unconfirmed report that only 30 houses out of 250 are left). It must be very distressing to the residents but fortunately at this stage there does not appear to be any loss of life. Lets hope it stays that way.

It seems the historic steam museum is gone. I have always been going to go back and revisit the steam museum, but sadly that will never happen. Here is an image from my last visit (in 2010). Magnificent machinery carefully restored by local volunteers.
