Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Threes

In 1889 the railway line from Sydney to Cooma opened amid much fanfare and celebration. It meant that people could travel overnight to the Snowy Mountains in relative comfort, and also allowed the residents of the mountains to visit the city with ease. After nearly a century of service the train line closed in 1988 but the station and a section of the line have been maintained since then by the Cooma Monaro Railway, a group of passionate train enthusiasts. Their dedication means that this nostalgic collection of buildings and railway equipment will be preserved as a history lesson for generations to come.
