End of the line

Against the buffer, at the end of the train line.

This is steam engine 3526 at the former Mortuary Station, Sydney. The station opened in 1869 and was the terminus of the Rookwood Cemetery line. The line, as you may have guessed, served to transport bodies from central Sydney to Rookwood Cemetery in Lidcombe, western Sydney. I took this photo from another steam-engine-hauled heritage train during the NSW Rail Museum’s heritage weekend in May.
