Australian Portland Cement had a tunnel in their Fyansford line.

Yep, that's the one I was thinking of. Just to show I can think of things outside of Gippsland.  Laughing
And before anyone says it, I'm aware there was a tunnel near Powelltown, but I'm not aware of it being a particularly "substantial" one (the bump).
"B 67"
I suppose it depends on what you mean by "substantial", but the Bump tunnel was a reasonable length.  There was also a tunnel on Henry's (if I recall correctly) tramway out of Forrest.

I probably should've reworded the question when I realised The Bump was a possible answer. I know it was a reasonable length. But I've never seen photos of it or had a look myself when I've driven over it. I had a feeling there may be other tunnels on various tramways, but I sort of assumed such tunnels would be somewhat roughly constructed. But perhaps not.
Anyway, I got the answer I was hoping for.

Sonofagunzel's turn.

Can't think of anything challenging so here's an easy one - what is (was) the structure between the tracks next to the pedestrian overbridge at Petersham (NSW)?

Hopefully some more interesting NSW questions will come from the winner (not that Vic questions aren't interesting).

Depends if the winner asks NSW questions.  Wink
I've been on that bridge, but can't think what structure you mean. And at present I don't have time ot check my photos or video to see if I can work it out. Shall do that late tonight in the unlikely event nobody else has answered.

Why do I suddenly feel so lonely here (apart from B67)?

Either a signalling hut or the remains of the original platforms 2 and
3? (Petersham used to have 4 platforms, the present no. 1 is still there but not used. - I think the present 2 platforms were built later when the line was upgraded to 6 tracks.)[/img]

I was looking for a more specific answer ...

As I seem to have stopped an active and interesting thread in its tracks (no pun intended), what I might do is hand over to John of Melbourne (who answered B67's question more comprehensively that I did anyway - are you still around?) and start a new (NSW) quiz.  (I didn't do that in the first place cause I thought it'd be cheating - one must earn the right to the honour of asking a question!)

Off you go John.

It does stop for a day or two now and then. So I wouldn't worry about it. Smile

Yes , but looking at the history (would that be Railway Archaeology Quiz Archaeology?), Quiz #3 was killed by a NSW question also.

Which incidentially I gave an answer for to which I have never been told whether I was correct or not! (And I'm a Vic resident Smile)

Sonofagunzel. Maybe you threw some people by asking a question about a line that isn't closed.  Laughing
