No. 67 January 1980:
- Wooden rails to Kinglake and Flowerdale: Timber tramways of Whittlesea (Victoria), by Ralf Alger
|This is a special issue dealing exclusively with a 3 ft gauge wooden-railed horse-hauled timber tramway which operated from Whittlesea railway station (28 miles north of Melbourne). The tramway ran mostly along the Yea Road to Flowerdale and Kinglake, and had many branches. It operated from 1912 to 1926. The article includes detailed maps, many photographs, and very well written text – including a day in the life of a driver.
