On the Way to Melbourne, Friday, 14th August, 2015

At 7 am we boarded the railway coach that took us up Macquarie Pass to Moss Vale. The train from Sydney arrived some time later in Moss Vale and took us all the way to Melbourne where we arrived  a bit before 7 pm’

We arrived in Moss Vale already at 8 am and we had more than one hour to spare before the Sydney train was due. We used the time to book in our luggage and to have some coffee and cake from across the road. On the train later on we were served a good hot lunch. We also had some light beer with our lunch.

But here now are some pictures Peter took at Moss Vale railway station:

  1. Love the old fashioned railways Uta, can always pick them by the old brick open fireplace chimney on the roof.
    That’s a great colorful Wattle tree, gorgeous.
    Cheers.

    1. I am so glad we did this trip again, Ian. The XPT Express Sydney to Melbourne stops only a few times. One of the stops is Cootamundra. I have just looked at a map of Cootamundra that Peter printed out a few years ago when we were thinking of moving there. At the time we spent one night in Coota. I have very good memories of it.
      And we always love to spend a bit of time in Moss Vale. The railway station is a very welcoming place.
      Thanks for commenting, Ian.
      Cheers, Uta 🙂

      1. Cootamundra, if I remember rightly, is a very dry landscape, I think my old Army training area was around there, Wagga Wagga and Hay area, will have to check it out again, memory is not as good as it used to be.

    1. We always like to revisit places that we’ve been to before, Elizabeth. Next year we’re going to travel again to my birthplace. I am looking forward to refresh some memories/ 🙂
