    Things rusty. On the disused line between Tocumwal and Deniliquin (New South Wales)

    I think things "stopped" on this line a long time ago!

    Dunedoo station (pr. DUN-EE-DO) New South Wales, about 3 hrs north west of Sydney. Only freight on this line these days.

    More railways, more pubs!

    Nothing to do with TOOTing, just where I stayed with some friends for four days last weekend. House right on the beach. Port Stephens on the New South Wales central coast, about 3hrs drive north of Sydney. Very relaxing!


    TOOT!

    Great pics! The hotel building looks like it would be fun to model. Looks like you had a good time!

    Woodie,

    I was browsing 4Nscale.com and came across this:

    http://www.walthers.com/exec/productinfo/555-201

    I had to look it up on the Walther's site to see what it looked it... It has a few superficial similarities to Hotel Dunedoo. Just thought I'd share! [​IMG]

    RoryG from lasow.

    The Hotel Dunedoo is very typical of raliway heritage of Australia. The local pub and station are one and the same. Where the raliway ended up, hotels of this arhitecture also were built. (i've posted a few other pics of similar pubs). Even in the suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne you will see examples of this hotel (pub) architecture at stations as the railways were expanded.

    TOOT!

    PS. wait.... wait.... wait for the next train... sip sip slurp slurp.... HIC! OOOOPPPPS.... missed it! sip sip slurp slurp..... HIC! That's what they were built for! [​IMG]

    Woodie,

    The Hotel in Dunedoo looks right out of the old west in America. I especailly like the semaphore shot. Are they still widely used around there?

    Thanks for the pictures, any great whites off that beach?

    George.
