A TRIP TO QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 31 March 1914
.4 TRIP TO QUEENSLAND. .V. (By P. d., Glen lee). Th"} first detachment of the Sydney express leaves Bpencer Street at 4 p.m., and at 10.21 after a run through the Kelly country, stops at Albury in New South Wales territory. The cry is raisnd "All change here," and also " Refreshments, 75 minutes stop." On getting out one finds the New South Wales express practically alotiir:-i(le the Victorian one, and with very little inconvenience luggage can be transferred, provided .you set to work immediately. The railway platform at Albury appears to be fully half a mile in length, and to get a bit cf refreshment it means a walk to the extreme New South Wales end of the same. However, the railway authorities have very wisely arrang ed that when the express does re sumo its journoy at 11,5 p.m. it makes 3 bri.f halt at the door of the re freshment rooms, for the convenience, I suppose, of " stragglers." It was my intention to make for Milbrulonp, a station on the Bock- Oaklands branch line, and...
