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.
