On April 21st Brian (train and photography geek) and I (industrial history and general technology geek) visited the Maitland Steamfest.
The first part of the day was photographing the carnival-like exhibition around the Maitland Railway Station. There were several restored 31/32/38-series steam trains using the platform to transport passengers to the other Steamfest venues.
Afterwards, we drove out to the Richmond Vale Railway Museum– I’ll post those photos later.
(If anyone’s going to say unkind things about us being old enough to find this fascinating…)
The old Maitland station Signal box building is now occupied by a Model Train club. Brian probably took a few too many photos of this exhibit…
