The Signal Cabin.. Claremont Railway Station..



While in Claremont on Thursday we called in at the Claremont Railway Station. Opened in 1881 it's the only station on the Freo line to retain it's original buildings, making them the oldest railway station buildings in Perth. I wish I had had the time to take 'public travel aficionado' Melbourne blogger Andrew to see these gorgeous old buildings, so much to see, so little time :) The old signal cabin is open for a look-see at certain times, not unfortunately when I was there. These shots were all taken within ten minutes, how the sky is so different in every one is le mystère :) Back tomorrow with the lovely old station buildings, happy Sunday, take care and stay safe...p.s. I was in no danger taking the last shot :)

  10. The station looks wonderful. I did notice it from the train and then a few days later we went past in the bus and I took a photo of the exterior that did not really turn out.
