Railway


Like so many inland towns the railway was very important in days of old but today Kandos is the end of the line. Only occasionally tourist trains come up this far, but the line is still active a little further back for regular coal and cement trains.

  1. Both start with 'R' but this one is a Railway NOT a Royal ....

  2. Are you going to start a new collection of hotels?

  3. No, I am sticking with the Royals. This one snuck in because there was a car at the railway station making the photo a bit odd. I hear the railway station is being turned into a cafe which will be nice.

  6. This post about the railway reminded me that, here in Lebanon, a significant stretch of railroad was constructed by the Australian Army during WWII--I think it was WWII. There was a small exhibition of archival photos and contemporary images of the bridges and lines at the ANZAC day commemoration that I attended last week. Amazing.

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.
