Just a quick post to mark the passing of the last Harman coal tower in NSW at Casino, which was destroyed by fire this week. In typical fashion, I never photographed it properly. Just took a single snap as I passed by on a work trip. At the time, which was the 29th July 2005 by the way, I was more interested in the colourful diesels in the foreground.
In happier times - not to mention earlier times - here's a snap of what could be 3004T adjacent to Dubbo's version of the tower.
Bugger of a thing, losing beautiful old edifices like these to neglect. It makes me even more appreciative of the skill and time that Walker Models used to create a HO scale model of these now extinct beauties.
