Thanks again Lex. It's a very photogenic area. I too would love to know the history. Cheers, Adrian.
Thanks Lex. Yes, a very interesting place, long abandoned on private property. Love to know the local history. Maybe on the next visit. Cheers, Adrian.
Thanks mate. It's a shame and a disgrace. Seems such a waste to see it rotting away, especailly the magnificent timber bridges. And all that hard work by our forefathers and built the hard way, by hand. Cheers, Adrian.
Thanks mate, it was a fantastic view from 1,285m on a glorious afternoon and I had it to myself. Beautiful country we have. Thanks again for your comment.
I'm pretty sure this is an old bank as well. The manager has his residence on the premises as was the case in earlier years. Both of the other banks were the same. The cafe next door was known as The Red Rose cafe in the late 1950's and 1960's.
This is the old Commerical Banking Company of Sydney ? The Bank of NSW building is directly opposite.
Superb photo!!! The almost horizontal lighting is magical and the sky with its colour and windswept clouds is brilliant!!!. Well done. Adrian.
You are quite right Lex, our pioneers in this mode of transport would be turning in their graves I reckon to see all this hard yakka and care over the many decades to be now run down. At least these buildings are maintained and see the daily Dubbo XPT service pass by as well as the daily Bathurst passenger train ("The Bullet") and the weekly Broken Hill passenger service. Maybe with the eventual opening (here's hoping) of the Oberon Brand and tour trains, this sleepy railway may come to life once more. Regards, Adrian.
Thanks Lex, as typical of all these small country villages and towns maintain beautiful memorials to remember the ultimate sacrifice their local sons, and daughters, made during world conflict. These memorials are always worth the time to look over, record and help honour those mentioned. Kind regards, Adrian.
Thanks Lex for your kind comments. Yes, shame about to the removal some years ago of the Up Main Line to Sydney through this Central Western area. A drop in rail traffic and the cost of maintainence caused this strange situation with a railway platform with no track. Regards, Adrian.
