a classic Aussie station -- Ormeau, Queensland, 1964


On the original Gold Coast line a little south-east of Beenleigh.  A new line for high speed trains was built in the mid-1990s and the Ormeau station now is rather different to this.  From the I Love Ormeau Facebook page

1954 Plymouth


The Plymouth logo hood ornament is missing and some original chrome is painted black, among other things.

cars on the Maryhill Ferry, Columbia River, 1955


Viewed from the Oregon side of the river, the Washington side is in the background.  The ferry was replaced by the 2,567 ft (783-metre) long Sam Hill Memorial bridge in 1962, info

A 1955 Plymouth Savoy and a Cadillac of the same year are in the front.

A little station on the Hawke's Bay line north of Dannevirke which still exists thanks to preservationists. This shows saddle tank F43 at the station with a (mixed?) train. The photo possibly was taken between 1884 and 1890.
