Rail Geelong - hopefully everything you ever wanted to know about the history of the railways of Geelong and District, and then some.
Currently detailed histories are in place for the Melbourne - Geelong - Warrnambool, Geelong - Ballarat, Maribyrnong River Line, Newport Power Station, Altona, Fyansford, Cunningham Pier, Queenscliff, Geelong Racecourse, and Mortlake railway lines. Histories of the locations on the lines themselves have also been completed in various levels of detail.
Any comments or feedback is welcomed via the contact form.

Regional Rail Link updates
I've just uploaded another round of Regional Rail Link updates. New track is in place all the way from Southern Cross all the way to West Werribee, with signalling works completed as far as Sunshine.

Rebuilding the site
You might have noticed things are a bit screwed up - I'm currently rebuilding the site on a new server after my old web host pulled the plug! Most of the content is back up and working, but the gallery is the hard bit.
Hopefully everything will be back in good time!

Three months of Regional Rail Link updates
I've just caught up with another three months worth of Regional Rail Link project updates. Track laying beside the suburban tracks is completed as far as Sunshine where two new platforms in use, the stations are Tarneit and Wyndham Vale are virtually completed, and track laying is well advanced between Deer Park and Werribee. Here are the resulting photos of the RRL works.

Melbourne to Geelong and on to Warrnambool has now been covered, along with as well the various branches around Melbourne and Geelong. Geelong to Ballarat is currently in the works, with the Gheringhap to Maroona and Moriac to Wensleydale lines also partly researched.
