Glenreagh Railway Station by Michael Matthews

Photographed with a Fuji Finepix F810.

The abandoned railway station & passenger car at Glenreagh on the north coast of New South Wales, Australia.

Renamed “There was no movement at the station ….” for an Australiana Challenges group challenge in Jan 2011.

This image is a cropped version of the original 4 × 6 format.

This was taken on a damp summers day a few years ago.

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.

    This is magic Michael … I’ve never been in to this spot so must put it on the wish list♥

  • Thanks for the compliment Bev. This whole area is pretty amazing, especially Dorrigo to the south of here. It stays green when the rest of the state is in drought.

    how did you find this Michael? an excellent scene, well done!!

  • Thanks Mark. I saw a great photo similar to this on another photo site & did a search on the net to see where it was. Glenreagh is north of Dorrigo on the way to Grafton, so it was a good excuse to visit the beautiful Dorrigo as well.
