This DVD goes back to the twilight years of train operations on the Victorian Railways narrow gauge branch from Colac to Beech Forest and Crowes. Garratt locomotived G41, and later G42, were in charge of most trains. Trains are seen between Colac and Weeaproina, including shunting and utilising the balloon loop at Beech Forest.There is also a short section covering the remains of the line and the rail trail which has been established.
