There was movement at the station

At last! But I was surprised because I was expecting the 3801. This one reminds me of the ones painted by the French impressionist Claude Monet at La Gare Saint-Lazare

Words to walk with:
Yes, I do know the title of today's post comes from Banjo Paterson's poem The Man From Snowy River and has nothing to do with trains or railway stations.
"There was movement at the station, for the word had passed around
That the colt from old Regret had got away,
And had joined the wild bush horses — he was worth a thousand pound,
So all the cracks had gathered to the fray.
All the tried and noted riders from the stations near and far
Had mustered at the homestead overnight,
For the bushmen love hard riding where the wild bush horses are,
And the stock-horse snuffs the battle with delight."
