The station interior is quaintly retro and has historical displays to look at while you are waiting for your train.
During our visit to Sydney last week, we stayed near Museum railway station – opened in 1926 and one of our favourite underground stations in Sydney.
The station’s name refers to the fact that is near the Australian Museum, but the station is itself a bit of a museum, with old wall tiles, signs and advertisements. A Ford for £173 ($346)? My, times have changed!
We were walking past the Western Australian Medical Museum in Subiaco recently and went inside for a look. The museum had plenty of graphic reminders of how much medicine has improved during the past century.
We especially liked the early “lying in” room above and this collection of Flying Doctor memorabilia. The volunteer run museum is only open on Wednesdays and some Sundays, so check their website for details.
There were also a few vintage caravans at the Shannons Classic Car Show on Sunday. This little teardrop was towed by an Austin A70.
And we noticed this twin-axle fibreglass Olympic caravan in the carpark.
There were also some great lineups of sports and muscle cars at the Shannons Classic Car Show at Ascot Racecourse on the weekend, including Corvettes (above) and Austin Healeys.
And somehow the Toranas managed this amazing display of precision parking.
Yesterday we went along to the Shannons Classic Car Show at Ascot Racecourse in Perth.
Despite despite threats of rain and thunderstorms from the weatherman, the cars gleamed in the autumn sunshine beneath blue skies.
