After all of the speeches the visitors to the Taplan Railway Centenary celebrations moved down the main street to near the old Post Office. Here a special memorial plaque and historic monument had been set up as well as some signs.

The signs in the photo above show (from the left):

  • the Railway Crossing warning sign for the road crossing
  • the W sign indicating to the train driver to blow the train’s whistle as he approached the crossing
  • the Taplan station sign.

All of these have been relocated from their original positions so that they can be near the displays and memorial. The official unveiling and opening was performed by Mayor Leon Stasinowsky (below) on the 20th October 2013.
