The Toronto railway station opened in 1891 and was in regular use until it closed in 1990. While most of the line has been abandoned, the station itself is in good condition and is now used by the Lake Macquarie and District Historical Society.
I took some photos at the station a little while ago and I’m pleased with how they came out. They lent themselves to black and white very well.
I’ve been wanting to shoot the old Toronto railway station for a while now and I finally got the chance a couple of weeks ago. The station is an interesting piece of Lake Macquarie history – it originally opened in 1891 and was active right up until 1990. It’s now been repurposed as the Lake Macquarie Heritage Centre and the line and station are still mostly intact. Wandering around you can really feel the history and it’s a great area to photograph.
I hope you like the photos. I’ll have to go back at some stage to shoot a sunrise.
