Bob the Railway Dog Book Launch – August 1st at the Railfan Shop, Mont Albert.
I visited the Railfan Shop, 4 Churchill Street, Mont Albert again this morning to have some photos taken by the Whitehorse Leader in preparation for the Bob launch on August 1st.
The Railfan Shop has been owned and operated by the Association of Railway Enthusiasts Ltd. for around 35 years, based in and around Melbourne locations during its history. The Mont Albert Shop is operated as an outlet to sell books, magazines, DVD’s and videos, posters and assorted railway memorabilia to people who are interested in transport, predominantly in trains and trams, but also aircraft, bus and other transport.
The shop is situated right opposite the Mont Albert Railway Station among a quaint street of cafes, gift shops, clothing shops and bakeries, to name a few. There are also a couple of well-stocked op shops, chemist, florist etc. Back in 2007 I had a book signing for ‘Queenie One Elephant’s Story’ at the Mockingbird Bookshop, a popular spot which only closed its doors when the bookshop owner had to return to the USA.
