Next Train




The information boards look as quaint and old fashioned at the engine but our station at Lawson still has them.

Today we are finishing this series, the next train is going to take us somewhere else.

  1. A wonderful old-world-look to this station. I'm wondering where the next train is going to take us.

  6. That is a familiar board. One I saw everyday of my school life when going home from school except Woolooware is on the Cronulla line. It should be Helensburg. Otford, Stanwell Pk. Bill would love this place.

  7. I knew Diane would comment on the yellow board. I loved the way they flicked that board to make the names right for the next train.

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.

A stark white forest

Actually the poem says "The stark white ring-barked forests, all tragic to the moon" but this white snow gum forest is not ring-barked, nor is it their normal healthy white ... this is the result of the bushfires that swept through the region in 2003. They are reshooting from the base and will recover but it will be a slow process.

At this altitude snow gums grow low and are usually twisted into fantastic shapes. The stuff of many awesome photographs, typically in the snow.
Musing:
From The Snow Gum by Douglas Stewart
"It is the snow-gum silently,
In noon’s blue and the silvery
Flowering of light on snow.
Performing its slow miracle
Where upon drift and icicle
Perfect lies its shadow."
