Reading the Railway Landscape:
Interpreting Visible Railway Relics
Between Hornsby and Gosford
Following our intrepid lineside landscape interpreter's train ride from Hornsby to Hornsby via Strathfield and Central, this article travels from Hornsby to Gosford
up the Short North line to review the many relics that still exist.
Cemetery Station Number 1
John Oakes, author of the well-known book on the line reviews several photos by Allan Watson and researches the possibilities and draws out what these photos
can tell us.
Bungabbee Creek Bridge
The railway between Casino and Murwillumbah traverses one of the most well-watered areas in New South Wales. The replacement of the second bridge over Bungabbee Creek, near Leycester, in 1962 is particularly interesting because the process was well recorded in photographs, and a written account of the work involved survives.
