Brown's Colliery Richmond Vale Mural

I know I said yesterday was the last day of my Kurri Kurri murals, but the I spotted this one that I haven't posted so you now have another day of murals to look at.

This is the scene of Richmond Vale Colliery. The colliery is long gone but now Richmond Vale is a museum where they restore old steam engines and rolling stock and run them along the line between Richmond Vale and Pelaw Main.

In 2017 during our bushfire season there was a terrible bushfire that almost destroyed the museum and a lot of the rolling stock, engines, rail line and sleepers. It is slowly being restored again but it was so sad to see the devastation the fire left behind.

Sorry I am a bit absent at the moment, but we were out for dinner last night with friends and I have been out most of today too. Hope to be able to catch up later this evening.
One for your David, for sure! Fabulous mural though how sad about the bushfire damage.

It’s really good to see one in full size Babs…the detail is wonderful, I never noticed the surface, it’s quite a brick effect.

That is some very nice artwork.

There is so much detail in this mural, even a lizard. Did you already say if all these murals were painted by the same individual or many?

Beautiful mural of this train!

Beautiful mural

@casablanca Thanks. The damage was devastating especially as all the people who restore the trains, railway lines and rolling stock are volunteers and they have spent years restoring some of the locomotives.

@kjarn It is interesting to see the murals but sad that the town is so run down at the moment.

Here is a link to the website and if you look at the bottom of the page you will see where you can download a map of where the murals are. http://www.visitkurrikurri.com/events-attractions/kurri-kurri-murals/

Some of your grandkids may be interested in visiting Richmond Vale Railway Museum too. We haven't been since the bushfire destroyed a lot of the museum site though.

It is interesting to find all the murals around the town and I will go back again one day to find some more.

@shutterbug49 The murals are painted by different artists. On each mural somewhere in the picture you will find a kookaburra. Sometimes they are obvious and sometimes they are quite hidden. It is another feature of interest in seeing the murals. Kurri Kurri is known as the town of the kookaburra.

Great mural! You sure get out a lot now!
June 17th, 2021  
Yes, I see the kookaburra. Now I will go back and find it in the others. Thanks for the info.
June 17th, 2021  
A great find and capture.
