It's easy walking through the paddocks until you come to the trestle bridge near the old Bolinda station.

I have to admit a connection to this line as my GGF and his Father-in-Law were Gangers at Lancefield Road (later Lancefield Junction, and later still, Clarkefield) in the mid 1880's, and they have probably walked over it in better times.

Sadly all those 'pagers, except for Skitz appear to have left this mortal coil... Sad

Bevans may well mean 'Lancefield up into the hills' as that section of line to Kilmore was discussed recently and closed well over 100 years ago.

Surprisingly, some of the formation between Lancefield and Kilmore is still visible.
