The Goulburn rail heritage centre is located on the Braidwood road to the south of town & it was a very pleasurable visit.I arrived just after 10am & was the first of many visitors to take the tour.Now i must apologise i have forgotten the gentlemans name that conductored the tour, but his knowledge of the exhibits & area were fantastic.I had a quick look through the driver & firemans register on display & found 2 relatives on my fathers side that were based at the Goulburn depot.Aparently i also have relatives that worked as signal men at Goulburn as well, but they dont not keep those records.Plenty to look at & well worth the visit.
Now onto Crookwell :- i tried to contact the people in charge of the yard but no answer to my phonecalls.So i hadnt come all this way not to get some photos,so a quick walk around the yard to get some photos.The station building is still intact & restored,as well as the goods shed but the timbers on the deck are showing there age.Got plenty of picks of the turntable which will help when scratch building my own version.
