An early view of Broadmedows looking north, circa 1905. The level crossing (#11 gate) in the foreground is the present day Camp Road (named after the nearby military camp) The motivation to take this photo was probably the impending replacement of these hand gates by cattle pits which occured on 16-4-1906
Aa 554 and a re-boilered old A class on Up Sydney express at Broadmeadows 1906.
This loco was barely a year old when the photo was taken. The first vehicle behind the locos is an insulated TT van,
possibly bringing fruit from Queensland, the passenger stock is "V" stock
