Stuart Town

Next we rolled down the road to Stuart Town, yet another railway town, but unlike most (and the sign left on the chalk board) this one is visited daily by the Sydney-Dubbo XPT passenger service.

I was interested in the unusual church-like portico on the railway station.  Closer inspection revealed that it is only ever visited by spiders and pigeons.


  1. It's an unusual portico for a railway station, isn't it?

    Regarding the chalk board: seems like someone was waiting too long ;-)

  2. It does look like a church portico. Does the XPT actually stop here?

  3. That's very pretty. Glad it's been preserved.

  4. Really unusual. I thought it was a church until I saw the chalked "next train."

  5. Yep, the XPT stops here on the way to Dubbo in the morning and on the way back to Sydney at the end of the day. There are other CountryLink Bus Services throughout the day.

  6. At first I thought it was a church, but it's a lovely train station building.

  7. I really like the detail shots, especially the little charlk board with useful messages. ;)

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
