    A friend of mine in Sydney - Chris Familton, a fellow NZer - told me of this blog so I've dipped in, and gratefully. I was drawn to this article more than the others, given Wayne Elsey's untimely death and the strange parallels it had to my own life. Several years previously, two of my school friends had been walking across the very same rail bridge on which Wayne died; unaware of the approaching train, they were both clipped and thrown - dead - across the side and into the river below.
