La Gare de Balhannah : le plus court journée de l'année

La gare de Balhannah dans les collines d'Adelaïde est maintenant hors d'usage.
Elle a été ouverte en avril 1883.
On le trouve, sur la ligne entre Adelaïde et Melbourne.
C'est comment il regarde le solstice d'hiver, le jour le plus court de l'année ici, dans l'hémisphère sud.

Balhannah Station on the shortest day
The disused Balhannah railway station in the Adelaide Hills opened in April 1883 and is on the Adelaide-Melbourne line.
This is how it looks on the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year.

If this were in England, these railway buildings would have been sold and someone would be living in them, having chi-chi-d them up. Is the track still used?

So true, Jilly!

Great photo, Monsieur, love the tones and perspective.

Jilly there'd be an old-world charm in living there too, don't you think?

Shortest day downunder, longest day in Europe. The tides are turning and you're on your way to better times :-)
