September 2007 - Changes to The Hill

The existing Cudgewa - The Hill section (below Boundary Ck trestle to above Beetoomba trestle) was not long enough for the wall, so I am in the process of extending it. The picture above shows the work in progress. The old connection is shown by the red curving line where part of the old track not removed can be seen. The two sections used to connect at A-A. The new alignment is between B and B and includes a (relief!) straight section. The expanses of cream are the new cutting walls which have been plastered. The track has been ballasted and painted however the scenery is yet to be added. The previous "Mountain Ash" forest has been pulled out leaving some holes (eg. C), it will be replaced by a more authentic (and hopefully better looking!) medium density eucalypt forest.
