Basic Coaling Stage

Even though steam passenger traffic to Alexandra ended many years before the close of the line in 1978, some coaling of the 'Ks' and 'Js'  that were heading the excursion trains was necessary. So I decided to give Alexandra yard a very basic coaling stage, probably not very accurate, but to me it looks the part.

The chap sitting there upon the stage is apparently waiting patiently for some shovels to arrive on a mixed goods from Melbourne. A nice long cuppa seems to be in order.....
