The signalman at Wodonga B box prepares to recieve the staff from the fireman on a up Albury passenger train. circa 1900.

Phoenix built AA 556 leads an up Albury pass around the curve into Wodonga. The train consists entirely of E cars which entered service starting 1906. The AA class were bumped from these trains by the A2 class which started to appear in 1907. Who knows, this may have been the first run of the new E cars on the North East.

ABOVE: The up Sydney Express departs Wodonga on its journey to Melbourne. This photo was taken by famous Wodonga driver George Lynch. The eliptical roof CE van helps date this photo as the first one didn't appear until 1924 Electric headlights started appearing in 1926 and were first utilised on the Sydney and Adelaide expresses which means the photo was taken sometime between 1924 and 1926. Thanks to Uncle Trevor for help with the caption.

This photo doesn't look like it belongs on a webpage dedicated to VR but the hiring of Commonwealth Railways locos and through running with N.S.W. meant that scenes like this became common. The GM was running the 1115 down Albury goods which was put away in Wodonga loop to cross the up "Intercapital Daylight" Dec. 8 1984
