Good Afternoon everyone.
Does anyone have a photo of the city skyline taken from the west (EG Strathfield looking towards the city).
Used to commute and always got the seat going backwards on the train so one of my key memories is of that view.

Thanks.
Fred

I love the old parcel vans.

I Still remember how they'd slow down on approach to the platform and the parcel guy would toss the parcel onto the platform without the train stopping.

I had a mail order business where some of my customers asked for their purchases to be sent to them by rail; this proved to be a disaster as many disappeared and others arrived empty.
I switched to road freight with better but still poor results.
I then entered into a contract with Australia Post who proved to be most reliable indeed; over a period of several years and many thousand parcels I only lost two and was promptly paid out for them.
