Mudgee railway was the life blood of the town. I remember catching the 'milk run' train to Sydney. The train was an old 'puffing billy' . In winter the train men would slide along the corridors, tin boxes filled with sand that had been sitting with the engine and were very hot. They would cover the boxes with sacking and we would take off our shoes and keep warm. Sadly no trains come to Mudgee now eventhough the population has doubled and the building has been a series of eateries.
Original Hotel Circa 1900s
This historical picture features the old "Post Office Hotel", now the Cobb and Co Court Boutique Hotel. The original wrap around verandah is visible, unfortunately the local council decided to modernise and had the verandah removed.
