Dalek outta control


Isn't this groovy?
Can you guess what it is?
I photographed it while at Birregurra rail station.
Hawt Andrew 
has Guess This posts, and so does
and now I'm having a go.
A book prize to the first correct guess
(and no, it isn't an unwanted xmas-gift).

    NO Telstra NextG Broadband coverage for the very costly stick that goes in my laptop.
    NOW I am getting from 3250 to 3192, a 4-hour journey, next bulletin here will be MONDAY

  29. Wha'appen to today's post?!...

  30. Andrew got the closest.
    It IS a timber mill and the giant shuttlecock burns all the sawdust shavings etc.
    I will post the book prize addressed to Andrew Hiriser care of the PO at 3004 and they will ask him where it was sent from so the correct answer would be Cheltnam 3192

    Thank you linesman, thank you hot ball boys.

  31. Can't say it is something familiar to me and I do have some knowledge of sawmills. Hope you send the prize to 479 St K Rd.
