Ilfracombe, QLD - Relics from a Bygone Age

It's hard to believe that I shot these pictures almost six years ago.
I'm afraid I have to admit that I too am a relic from a bygone age.

ILFRACOMBE QLD




WAITING FOR THE TRAIN





DON'T ASK … I HAVE NO IDEA!!!




Lorell, going though my Ilfracombe folder, I found the answer to your question. I did take a pic of it after all!

I posted some cut down low res images of these in the Weekend Pub.
These hi res ones are linked to Flickr.

Great set of photos; fascinating relics.

And that shot of the gray and crimson birds on the tracks is proceless.

Hi Mark!
Those birds are fascinating!
We just have plain ole pigeons that
hang around our rails!
These are nice photos.
I asked DH: the mystery equipment also appears to be
a drilling/boring rig. those may be bits laying on
the ground along side of it.
He also recognized the Fordson tractor
immediately.
(grew up on a dairy farm so he has a natural interest in tractors)
So he enjoyed your photos too!
Thanks for posting larger format!

Mark, It sure does make a difference when the photos are a bigger resolution.
One of my favorites is the general store. Did you get the chance to go into it?

Do you think the tall red thing is a gas pump?

And of course I love the shot of the birds on the tracks.

I have the free version of FlickR so I'm not sure us cheap skates can link photos that large and have them still look good.
(I notice free FlickR appears to soften the files a bit like WC)
I'll have to try it when I get a chance.

Re: Ilfracombe, QLD - Relics from a Bygone Age

Dave Patty, Lorell, please accept an apology made on behalf of Microsoft's failed O/S, Win10
that has just blown the detailed replies made to each of you that I don't have the heart to rewrite.
If I outlive this machine it will be replaced with a Mac.

Thats ok Mark....sorry you lost your message. I have had that happen.
I drew the line a few years ago when MS was giving Win10 away for free.
I stuck with Win7 and will take this machine off line when its no longer supported.
Just trying to decide between Macbook or mac mini.
My on board drives are filled up and I'm using a cross platform
NAS drive already.
