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.
