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.

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!
