Flinders St Train Station in Melbourne is an icon to the locals, like me. I couldn’t tell you how many times I have been in and out of this station. Its not like it used to be though, with electronic gates now rather than people at the top checking tickets etc. People used to meet on the steps at the front, they still do, there was a phase that it was where all the crazies met.
I used to use the pedestrian tunnel in the centre under Flinders st as there were small shops underneath. One sold Dairy Queen Ice cream. I was a bit of an aficionado, there was also a shop in Caulfield and a couple of country places that sold “Real” rich dairy queen ice cream. It circled down on top of itself, one circle then a smaller, then smaller not wavy, not curly , I suppose like those toy circles on a stick for toddlers, ( you thought I was going to say something else…).
I also remember it was near an amusement arcade (pinnie parlour) but with electronic games. I must have wasted a bit of money there, Galaga, Space Invaders, some tank game I remember, the original tron game.
For those who sufferred me changing the blog earlier, I won’t be doing that again….sorry
