Yep, I reckon that might be the option. Photography looks better from the other sided but beggars can't be choosers.

Has anyone visited this old tramway bridge over the Warren River?

Looks like it is now on private property and not easily walka ...

Thanks Wool Stores, that's great.

Something's happening out near the stadium:

Is this where some of the sidings are going?

Thanks guys. Now that I know what it is called, I was able to find something in a previous thread (searches for "Vasse Hwy" or even busselton tourist railway gave me nothing):

It still has very old tourist attraction signs up on both approaches, which is the only reason I spotted it.

[quote=1978Prime]I'm not so sure that large amounts of grain would be shipped by road instead of rail, at least not directly from farm to port. A few years ago`when I worked at a grain bin during the ...

As soon as I saw this thread bumped, I just knew:

[quote=crisfitz]Just because farmer Joe can transport his grain how ever he wants it doesn't mean much to rail.

In fact it will more likely result in more farmers using road transport, as the quant ...

Thanks SKVT - I am guess that WN12 of 33 is Weekly Notice No. 12 of 1933? So that would be around late March.

Reckon you're on the money Rodo, I have a similar photo but with a thick covering of frost on the ground from an early winter's morning.

[quote=David Peters]I fail to see how any one could be so stupid as to park or even try a U turn on a level crossing at all. Taking a whizz was he, he would not have left the local waterhole would he. ...

First of many history questions, no doubt.

Between Dowerin and Amery, [url=http://goo.gl/maps/Cqv7m]here, was the line deviated to reduce grades? What era?

Well that makes a lot more sense Smile
Still a moron for choosing to do a u-turn on a fricken railway crossing though!
