Hi all, During this past Week, I have been up at Armidale attending a Church Week, On Friday I had the Opportunity to get Driven to Uralla and Armidale for some Snaps of the Station Precincts, They are as follows

Great shots! I live around that area so it's all pretty familiar to me, but I must admit I don't think I've seen a photo of the morning Xplorer from the southern end of the platform before - great idea.

Not sure what's going on (if anything) with those railmotors being done up by New England Rail Society. They have been sitting in the shed for a long while now, and sadly have been subject to graffiti in the past. I assume they are waiting for the funds/labour to get working on them again.

I believe the plan at one stage was to have a set running to the Walcha Road pub every so often and then returning later in the evening.
