    And to finish Carregado - Alenquer. This is where the first train in Portugal arrived in 1856, in a locomotive called "Portugal" bought to the British. Poor loco, was very tired in that first journey, because she was the only loco in Portugal and helped in the building of our first railroad.

    That station has been greatly improved, the last time I was on that platform was when Sue and I headed out to Birmingham 1980 to face the immigration interview for our intended move to Canada.
    Good Memories;)

    I've got family just north of Manchester, in Chorley (Lancashire). I always enjoy a day-trip into Manchester to look around, and take a ride on the tram!

    Sorry I missed you Bob. I've just opened an internet cafe this week, so that did take a little bit of priority. Can't leave it really, as I run the whole show.

    Hope you had a fab time in Australia and got to see heaps and of course, ride some TOOTs. :)
    Let us all know which ones. :)

    Hey Woodie

    Would that be a roo hide in front of the door?

    Interurben; Please excuse my ignorance, but I have no clue where Palmerston might be located, but I suspect maybe in OZ?

    Does this qualify? It used to be the Wexford (PA) station on the Pittsburgh, Harmony, Butler & New Castle Railway (interurban line). It was moved a couple hundred yards, and is now a post office.

    I guess we can accept that :D :D a large amount of Railroad Stations were also the Post Office (Pony Express) in a lot of towns.

    A lot of old railroad stations have been converted to other uses. There is one in Yorba Linda that is now the chamber of commerce building I think. I think that one in Brea is now a real estate office. The old U.P. Station in Fullerton was actually moved across the tracks and is now an "Old Spaghetti Factory" restaraunt. The old Pacific Electric Station in Fullerton was moved about 1/2 block farther and became a Knowlwoods restaraunt. Most old depots can be easily recognised as depots even if they are used for something else.
