Childhood dreams of Steam 1960 by 


Wodonga was the Victorian Broad gauge terminus near the Victoria-New South Wales break of gauge. There were a lot of goods trains moving around the yards. My son was just as keen as I was to get close, but wisdom suggested we should both look from a distance. This meant that he was not close enough to the train, but it was safer that way.

The station no longer exists.

Spend most of my time with images of yesterday (or before), but enjoy use of the Pentax K3 when possible.

    great photo…. reminds me of a little old train station in a little town when I was a child and lived there for one year… like your son in the photo, I often sit down and watched the old trains (steam) moving…

    Great shot. I thought it looked familiar. I used to do the same thing for hours on end at Wangaratta during the school holidays.
