I have been a bit busy for the last few days so there will be 2 posts in quick succession. You will see why when I do the next post.
On Thursday we drove from Lakes Entrance to Canberra. This was almost all new territory for us again and I was quite excited to be going through Bombala. It does not have any particular claim to fame apart from the fact that there is a song by Pat Drummond, “End of the Line” which includes the following lines:
Well the train rolled to a halt just out of Bredbo,
where the old Chakola bridge is undermined.
There’s no way to make the railhead in Bombala,
as we used to in my grandfather’s time.
Naturally, I wanted to see the end of the line and I was not disappointed.
Although it is no longer in use, we were interested to see the station buildings.
This was probably storage for incoming and outgoing freight.
