You may need to squint to see the railway line in this card of The Barnesmore Gap in Co. Donegal, Ireland.

DONEGAL RAILWAYS
The West Donegal Railway Company opened this line on 25th April 1882, the start of it’s construction having been hampered by seven weeks of snowstorm. The line closed in 1959. The Railway ran alongside a ledge built into the hillside for part of its route through Barnesmore Gap. Much of the trackbed can still be traced today, and is visible to all who visit Biddys.

The remoteness here is well illustrated, with the train clinging to the side of the Blue Stack Mountains. Note also the telegraph poles, vital in transporting all the telecommunications services that the railway required to keep it running. This would not only allow voice telephony between stations and signal cabins, but also operated the various block sections.

I saw this postcard on exhibit at the Museum of the Moscow Railway near Paveletsky station in Moscow. I was on my 20,000km train journey from Saigon to Scotland (via Pyongyang), which included the Trans-Siberian Railway.

The foreground (lower right) and the boreal forest in the background seem to be hand-coloured in green?!

We've got lots of photos of Budapest trams, we visited 5 times between 2014 and 2018 - we liked it so much!

Our favourite tram route was the No 2, which goes down the Pest side of the Danube (especially at night where many of the historic buildings and bridges are floodlit), but there are many interesting routes, especially the scenic run up to Hűvösvölgy.

Probably the world's most elegant fire station. Wakefield Street Adleaide on postcard to France sent in August 1909. Note that horses were still employed to pull the fire tender with a minimum crew of 8.

VICTORIA "GPO MELBOURNE"
VICTORIA &quot;GPO MELBOURNE&quot; - 1d QV Red
VICTORIA "GPO MELBOURNE" - 1d QV Red
Century old ONE PENNY QUEEN VICTORIA Pictorial POST CARD showing General Post Office, Melbourne postal history from Melbourne with various circular and label postmarks dated MELBOURNE 18APR.11 and VICTORIA addressed to Miss H. ?? "Berowra" Gordon St, (now 3 Farrar Road) Arncliff, Sydney NSW.

A nice message which said "Dear Hilda, We had a very smooth passage over to Melbourne. It was very nice not long though. I went up to the G.P.O yesterday. Went to get some stamps. It is not such a nice Building as ours. I think the sunset was lovely last night looking from the front down the .. with all the other ships."

A fine piece of postal history for study for historian on the early life in Victoria Era in Australia in the 1910s. "Berowra" Gordon Street, Arncliff appears to be related to the two-story brick house built by William Edward Esdaile in the 1897. ~ "By 1895 the family were back living at Gordon Street Arncliffe, and Edward purchased an adjoining, but more elevated site in Gordon Street (now 3 Farrar Road) Arncliffe. This was to be his next stepping-stone and he built Berowra, a split level two-storey brick house around 1897. This was quite an achievement for Edward, considering that he had purchased the Gordon Street cottage in 1893 and at a time when the country was plunged into a severe economic depression. To acquire sufficient funds to build a large new house during such a period was quite remarkable."

Back to transport!

A set of three picture postcards from the same correspondence. Florence Cleveland arrived in Fremantle in 1907 after a stormy crossing from Colombo and sends a card to her young sister Lily in Brixton UK. The first card shows South Terrace, Fremantle in the early 20th Century with two horse drawn carts to the left and two trams in the middle distance. Card stamped with 1d Swan.

By September 1907 Florence (Flossie) had moved on to Melbourne where a view of Elizabeth Street is shown with a tram of HB Railway in the foreground. Card bearing a 1d QV pink.

By March 1908 Florence and her husband Bert had arrived in Sydney (although the card they have sent to Lily would have been bought in Melbourne). The card shows a busy Collins street with a tram at the left. Note the huge number of electricity wires over the street. A NSW arms 1d completes the card.

A Swedish Tram to start us off. The card is anonymous and I don't know anything about the tram.

https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nockebybanan

The Nockeby line is an approximately 5.7 kilometer long tramway in Gamla Bromma garden city in Stockholm between Alvik and Nockeby . The track is served by trams that run on their own embankment except at certain street intersections, where they run on street tracks . The tram line operated by SL has line number 12 and the most common name locally is therefore twelve .

In 1919, the Nockeby line was given line number 12 (Tolvan). The Ulvsunda line was also given line number 12, but changed a year later, in 1920, to number 13. The name Nockeby line was not used in the first decade because the line had not yet been extended to Nockeby. Until 1929, the two sections with lines 12 and 13 bore the common name Brommabanan .

Another view of Elizabeth Street Melbourne, this time sent to France in November 1908. Note the tram in the central lane overtaking the line of horse drawn vehicles. This correspondent regularly stamped the front of the postcard, on this occasion with a strip of three of the Victoria 1/2d greens. Note the use of the word 'Gay' in the correspondence, denoting it's original meaning.

Another from Fremantle showing the criss-cross tram wires above. Stamped on the front by the 1d 1912 surcharge on 2d and 1/2d swans. Note again the stamps are on the front of the post card sent to Switzerland on the 3rd December 1912.
