I tried the library for this book and could not find it anywhere.

The library service here which has access to Victoria and N.S.W. is trying to track down the book for me.

I use Telstra because Vo ...

I also recall reading in a mid 1990's (Jan 96 maybe) edition of Newsrail that the former home signal at Shelly was still in situ.

I am almost sure I have seen the signal at Shelly and will keep my ey ...

If you go to Koondrook, on the northern side of the still existing railway sheds, there is a sunken type round sitting area with a pergola over the top.  That is where the turntable used to be.

This is a diagram of the rail line that goes into the Army barracks at Bandiana.  I don't believe it has been used for many years.  I cannot even remember the rail line crossing the Murray Valley High ...

I believe all the bridge steel from the main bridge over Lake Hume are all still down at the Wodonga rail yard at Bandiana.  I am going to go and see if that is a fact and if they are going to put the ...

No, unfortunately with all the liability paranoia around these days they have totally fenced off all access to the dam wall.  Goulburn Murray Water are locking up everything these days.  They even iss ...

Here is a map of where the Cudgewa line went. The cuttings and tour around the hills will be magic on a walking or bicycle trip.  In many places this trail goes through national parks and forests, and ...

The only bridge to my knowledge that is not there is the main bridge across Lake Hume.  All the other bridges including the main bridge across the Mitta Mitta are all intact.  All the magnificent tres ...

The old Cudgewa railway line has started to be made into a Rail Trail.

I rode along a couple of weeks ago on my off-road motorbike most of the way after the Lake Hume bridge to Bonegilla.  It is good ...

There was a proposed railway line from Devenish via Thoona and Boweya to Ovens Bridge at Peechelba to connect with the Peechelba East Railway to make a complete loop.  The period is believed to be 188 ...
