To Bob Bolton

Yes. The train in the 1800s left Mortuary Station at Central carrying the bodies to Lidcombe station then up the hill to Rookwood.

As you leave Lidcombe heading towards Sydney you can see where the old rail line " way" winds gently up the hill within the cemetery grounds

Things still are "crook in Tallarook and there ain't no work in Bourke "   But one can feel as " Crook as Rookwood" too
