Soon we find a string of fast food outlets that today seem to announce arrival at any place of size. We are passing through the small mining and industrial city of Lithgow.
Of course in places like the Blue Mountains where they continue to fight a valiant battle against fast food this does not occur, we just have the highway signs telling us how many minutes to reach Lithgow and our next Big Mac.
The old car below is on a farm just before Lithgow and the first Royal Hotel we see on the trip. The one at Donnybrook.
