Back by popular demand… Bassendean Rail Museum

February 9, 2011

Since it was published, my Bassendean Railway Museum post has been my most visited post.  So I thought I’d bow the enormous public pressure and post a few more photos from my recent visit.

Washbasin in the bathroom of 1880s carriage

Gas Lamp from Geraldton Train Station c. 1890

as a child I used to fantasise about stealing one of these and heading down the line to see where it went

Coffins, or equipment?

The view from the driver's seat

    The Old Bloke, 28/5/12

    Thanks for the site as it leaves me with the sound of approaching locos from distant days, plus returns to me that full on experience of being dumped in smoke ‘ soot and the wonderful smell of locos thundering under Claremont’s bridge in the 1960’s going to the show ground.

    Maybe the station’s have been replaced with boxes, but the memories remain, today’s trains are badly made toys in comparison, bring back the diesels with the blast of the horn and ring of the bell with fresh air from windows.

    Transport only equals the society in which it’s placed.

    Can you find a icon in today’s world?

    Why do most ‘ Classics ‘ go back not forward, was the best past, what will the next generation call iconic and the marvel, Music ‘ Cars and culture seems to be caught in a period past not future – was that the best ?

    Well – It was for Me!

    Tickets Please.
