Great photos Paul, thank you.

The Ford tow truck is a ripper! Back in the '90s our local garage/RAA road service contractor was still using a 1942 Chev truck set up very similarly. I fitted 4 new drive tyres to it for him when i was about 16.

His RAA service vehicle was an FB Holden sedan. He had made the front drivers compartment like a ute, and the backseat area was open right through to the boot with shelving longways through the centre.

He was a wonderful bloke, very kind to me, and VERY "old skool"! I learned a lot from him.

Stayed there overnight on a motorcycle holiday in the 90's. The rough, old pub I stayed at was across the road (?) from a most glorious train station.

When Dee and I stayed in Junee a couple of years back we did everything we could to ensure we did not go to the chocolate factory, it would have been a big problem for the diabetes. Yes Jarrod it is a beautiful old station and the airport museum at Temora is something to not miss.
