  • Yesteryear

    Now a museum, the old railway workshop at Inveresk, Launceston, Tasmania was, until it closed in the 80's, the largest in Australia.

    It employed over 2,000 workers who built and repaired the State's rolling stock. During WWII it was converted to a munitions factory.

    After the workshop shutdown the buildings became derelict and before restoration I once used the old railyards as a backdrop for wedding shoots.

    To some degree these images illustrate yesterday's engineering technology and visitors to the museum can walk along pathways around the machinery.

    The set which includes quite a few more, are from my film archives.

    Very interesting Mark. However you did it, you've caught that interior lighting very nicely.

    I have this totally wrong impression of Taz as a rather small island (probably because I only ever see it on a map in relation to the much larger Oz mainland) so it came as a bit of a surprise to learn that it had a railway at all!

    Ciao ... John

        This is a very nice documentary set with perfectly captured interiors. As already said above, you've captured the light and colour perfectly.

          Fantastic place, I could spend hours in there, just like an old tool shed. Lovely images, and I love the image with the carriages in particular.

          All great images though......

          Best wishes............Alan

            Thanks John. Taz is a heart-shaped triangle, each side approx 350km long. It is my home State.

            Thank you Chevvy. Population of Taz is approx 500,000 (499,999 since I left ) but due to a congenital deformity, Taswegians have a second head on their left shoulder (said to be caused by inbreeding) it could be said on a head count that the population is closer to 1,000,000. Before relocating to the mainland, I had mine surgically removed.

            Thanks Internaut - the mostly natural diffused interior lighting is perfect for photography.

            It is a magnificently conceived preservation of Tasmania's rail heritage, Alan. Thanks for commenting.
