Old steam engines never die, they just end up in the train graveyard at Dorrigo NSW Australia.
A fascinating collection of old engines, carriages and lots of old ‘train’ thingos can be seen here.

Thanks so much for looking at my work.
My husband and I are travelling around Australia in our caravan and 4×4 Colorado.
We visit lots of remote areas which do not have internet connection.
Will catch up with my RB friends when we are on-line.

    I jumped the fence and went for a walk around that place. They are trying to turn it into a museum but have a few problems with the Greens in Council. A lot of the trains actualy work. Nice photo by the way..

  • Thanks for looking at my work and for your comment Clayton.
    Did you have a can of spray paint in your camera bag when you jumped the fence? You naughty boy, I saw that old carriage with the graffiti on it.
    I had a look in ‘google’ There certainly is some history and interesting reading there.
    Cheers Myra

  • Thanks for your great comment. There would be thousands of old engines and carriages at Dorrigo.
    Who knows what will become of them. I’m pretty sure they are not bio degradable. lol
