Railway Heritage

State Mine Heritage Park & Railway, Lithgow

The railway plays an important part of the heritage of industry in Lithgow. Today we still hear long coal trains rumbling on the track over the Blue Mountains towards the sea.

There are more heritage carriages down at the local Railway Station (shown below). Yes it was a very grey day.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
