1st class

This is a first class dining carriage but we also got to peep through the windows of other amazing carriages like the state Governer's carriage, the Premier's carriage and the Railway Commissioners carriage -- very classy indeed.


  1. The romance of rail travel, i am a sucker for it. I am enjoying your series, any engines coming up?

  2. How much I would like to do a train journey in this kind of carriage. In its simplicity it's so elegant. But alas, I only own Converse and Boyfriend cut jeans with holes, ;-).
    Nice photo! Transports the elegance very well.

  3. as a kid I travelled up and down the north coast on a train and the high light was eating in the dinning car... oh the memories.... Thanks for this great pictures :)

  4. This is lovely! I haven't spend more than 16 hours on a train but would love to make a long journey with many stops on the way. My ultimate dream is the Rovos Rail in South Africa! :-)

  5. It has bigger windows than the Indian Pacific. Where is this museum? Did I miss a post?

  6. We are more egalitarian nowadays.

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.
