Recently my wife and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary. My wife organised for us to stay at the Junee Carriage B&B (Bed and Breakfast) on the Saturday night as surprise. The B&B is an old Sydney electric carriage re-fitted to accommodate up to 6 people, in comfort.
On the Sunday morning we visited the Junee Farmers Market, which takes place in the station car park once a month. The station has 3 platforms, but it seems that only one of them is used by passenger trains today – the other two platforms looked a little overgrown with weeds.
Junee was once a major junction and servicing centre and boasts a 360 degree roundhouse – a rarity in Australia.
Today part of the roundhouse houses the Junee Roundhouse Museum, which has lots of interesting historical items. More photos of the roundhouse museum can be found in the Photo Gallery, in the Prototype Photos, Junee Roundhouse Museum photo album. But here are a few just to wet the appetite…
As Junee is still a junction on the Main South line, it still sees a lot of railway traffic. A quick look around the Junee yard found an XRB loco, 2 GrainCorp 48 class locos and a 3 loco lash up connected to a container train.
