Australia - Walhalla Goldfields Railway

Victoria, Australia - Walhalla Goldfields Railway. Travel on Victoria's most spectacular railway which now takes you on a journey along the Stringer's Creek Gorge form Thomson through to Walhalla. The Moe to Walhalla railway was one of four experimental narrow gauge routes constructed early this century by the Victorian Railways to develop isolated districts where conventional broad gauge lines would incur prohibitive construction costs. The railway operated to Walhalla until 1944, and the final section from Erica to Moe closed in 1954. The entire line was eventually dismantled between 1958 and 1962.

There was nothing left (apart from derelict bridges) of the original railway so everything has been rebuilt from the ground up since 1993. Tracks points, buildings....everything ! In April 1994 the Walhalla Goldfields Railway was officially opened and trains started running again within station limits at Thomson.
