    This was given to me by an old lady who had sold her house and found it in a cupboard whilst cleaning out.
    Her late husband had worked at the same station for many years and never got around to wearing this one, it was still wrapped in plastic.
    The label has his name, the station (Wacol) and the date of issue in 1988 (the year of Brisbane world expo).
    Such a corny hat to wear though!
    Might be good for fancy dress nowadays?

      Ahhh....World Expo 1988! I went to it and it was a giant dress up party before Cosplay became trendy.
      See? Even State Rail got on board!
