Train travel

I really like the ads at the railway station, gives me something to look at while I wait.  I like the Opal cards too, so convenient. But quiet carriages can sometimes be a bit of hazard, some people get very agro when someone makes a noise and start making a bigger noise themselves.


  1. We certainly waited a long, long time for those Opal cards. Melbourne and Brisbane had their version installed years ago.

    1. Took a lot of time and money. I can't quite figure out why.

      Was talking to the station master this morning. The older folk are transitioning to Opal Ok. Apparently much better than when they stopped selling tickets and forced people to use machines.

  2. Great capture, Joan. I love the sense of movement you get from this perspective.

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.
