avondale railway station "new photos"
here is old avondale station,fully restored to its once proud heyday,theres a railway
museum inside this building,and this station also boosts a working train that operates on the original newfoundland railway
line,but only 1.5km's still exists to this day,and a few old reminders of the newfoundland railway can still be seen along
this once busy,but not forgotten about railway line.
here a small tourist train just about ready to take passengers down the 1.5km streatch of
track and back again.
i took this shot lying down between the rails,looking towards avondale railway station,can
you notice the chunks ripped out of the old ties from trains of long ago ??
the remains of an old forgotten about boxcar,can be seen from the original tracks,that
are still intact to this day.
heres the remains of old boxcar #603,she has taken a very bad beating over the years,but still
manged to keep her number plate intact. ( bottem center right )
here sits proudly engine #925 waiting for her next orders,although she never well,this engine
is one of most well restored engines left in newfoundland.
this coach is still used today,altough not running the rails,she is being used as a
resturant during the summer months,and as such,is fully restored with even the plates,cups,silverware that the newfoundland
railway once proudly had on display.
here we see an old mailcar,although she no longer carries mail,she is now serves as
the kitchen for the resturant car.
what would a station be,without a caboose to show off. notice this caboose also carries
the terra-transport logo.
and of course the famous pushplow.
