Site hosting move

June 12, 2008
The site hosting has just been moved, but everything seems fine.

More photos

April 14, 2008
At present there are two projects occurring on the Geelong line: construction of the Corio Independent Goods Line which is a dual gauge freight line from North Geelong up to North Shore, and the relaying of the wooden sleepered parts of the Geelong Line. Photos of both projects are here and here.

New Updates!

April 01, 2008
Firstly, I have fixed the earlier issue. Secondly, the big announcement - the time has finally come - at least some of the updates I said I would do are now done. I think that is it!

Busted URLs

April 01, 2008
At the present time I am having some trouble with the upgrade I have carried out: my home server didn't have any trouble with the .htaccess file I wrote, but this server it throwing huge tantrums. As a result when you click any links you get a 404 error as they are not getting translated to 'real' pages properly. Uggg!!!!

Photo Gallery

September 07, 2007
The photo gallery is now operational: http://www.railgeelong.com/gallery/ There is also a search page, and images are linked to the relevant location pages.

Aerial Explorer Fixed

June 19, 2007
If you have been trying out the Google Maps at http://www.railgeelong.com/aerial.php , you might have found them working strange. That's because the code behind it was mucked up when I updated something that uses the same functions. Anyway - it is fixed now, and works as I intended it to.

Site Live

June 18, 2007

It is one more week until the Geelong Line turns 150 years old, and this site is now live to the public.

Rail Geelong

It is a history of the railways of the Geelong Region - the Geelong, Queensclliff, Fyansford, and Cunningham Pier lines, as well as every location on them.

Each rail line has a writeup, tables of important events, as well as track and safeworking system diagrams for each and every year. As well as that, each location has a writeup, important events listed, and track diagrams. Finally, there is a Google Map mashup that overlays all locations against satellite and map imagery.

I hope you all find something interesting - there are months of coding and research behind it. :)

And on a side note, I would like to thank Andrew Waugh for allowing me to use his station histories data, and Paul and Kathleen Kenny for the Queenscliff line data.
