Melbourne Railway Station History Poster

Hi all,  
I was wondering if anyone knows of a poster that was printed around 2004 that shows all melbourne train stations that ever existed with a little blurb about when they opened, closed, got renamed etc. It had a picture of flinders street station in the background in black and white.  I can't seem to find it anywhere online for sale unfortunately.  If anyone knows the print I'm talking about or knows where I could find one for purchase I would love to hear from you Smile.

I saw it once at a old mates place and fell in love with it, now I want one for myself.

Cheers

Yes I have one, a little ratty at the corners now, but other than that it's tucked away in a cupboard. IIRC I bought it at the Railfan shop in Melbourne, probably around 2004 too. You could try there.

Tried the railfan shop, no love. I have sent them a couple of emails and I don't seem to get any replies plus it's not listed on there website.

I'd try Trainworld, they understand the concept of 'customers' a bit better than the Railfan shop.

Oh, that's no good. Maybe they know how to answer a phone (if you can't find one elsewhere).

I have one of these. It was definitely purchased from the railfan shop a number of years ago.

Just got an email back saying they just got a bunch in stock recently but they should have it listed on the website. Still good to hear though Smile Will have to head over to Mont Albert in the coming days.

The only station this poster left out from memory is Werribee Racecourse, A slight overlook perhaps.

Was that ever part of the metro rail network? Certainly the wires never reached there.

Rookie mistake, I understand electrifying was on the cards though.
