    General view of Albury Station and yards. Most old infrastructure still exists, even though it may not be in use. Note the old turntable.

    The Melbourne/Sydney XPT Passenger Service stops at Albury. The XPT train is powered at both ends, and is based on the Intercity 125 from the UK. Melbourne/Sydney is served by a day service and a night service daily. Travel time is 12 1/2 hours.

    Woodie,

    Albury looks like the entrance to some kind of resort!

    The turntable shot looks like it could be almost anywhere in North America. That would be a great shot for a "Guess where this is?" contest.

    Thanks for the shots!

    George.
