Steam trains

State Mine Heritage Park & Railway, Lithgow

A steam train that isn't belching steam doesn't have quite the same alure but it was fun to photograph nonetheless.


  1. ah, yes, it would be nice if you could get a picture of a steaming train :) but I do like the way it looks with that lighting

  2. A coal shuttle, an oil can ... what's the other one?

  3. Are the objects inside the train where they once belonged?

  4. The first photo is very good with the focus on the can in the background and the black metal train cladding as background.

  5. Julie, no idea. Perhaps a lamp of some sort.

    JM, not they were sitting on the bench at the front of the train.

    Martina, thanks for making the out of focus bit a virtue.

    Megan, at the end of May they have steam train weekend in the mountains. I may try to get some steaming then.

  6. Oh these are lovely, battered items. I've always loved technical and transportation museums as much as those dedicated to art. There's so much beauty either place.

  7. It looks in good condition. Maybe, they take it out to belch some steam now and then

  8. AB, I was told the train is in working order so does get out sometimes.

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.
