Geoffs Life After Work !

Life is just beginning

Trains,Trains and more Trains

Today we visited the Train museum in Bassendean (birth place of Rolf Harris !!) and the display is awesome The museum is approx 2 kms from my old home in Caversham and 20 kms from Perth CBD I am an avid train fan and will be building a model railway once settled into our new home>Steam has always fascinated me and reminds me of an era gone by that will never come into existence again sadly .My younger brother Brian when a lad travelled all over the North West of England collecting train names and numbers No longer will we see the spectacle of engines like the Flying Scotsman or the ones we caught on a Sunday from Blackpool to Fleetwood in a glorious railway station that was demolished and turned into the rubbishy station it is today ! Because I have taken SO many photo,s my next blog will contain a slide show (just for enthusiasts) of  more trains and memorabilia. Some of the carriage interiors are magnificent with their wooden structures,dining rooms,bedroom and a carriage specifically built with approx 6 shower rooms !! Australia is a HUGE country and rail travel was built for comfort taking into consideration the length of time a person could spend on a train travelling from coast to coast If in this area DO pay the museum a visit All associated at the museum are volunteers Entry fees go along way in helping the museum survive
