TUGGERANONG RAILWAY SIDING

A little bit of railway history and a nice walk with the dog yesterday to the Tuggeranong railway siding on the old Cooma line. The railway line in fact forms the eastern border of the ACT. The railway of course has been out of service for years and the Tuggeranong siding for much longer if the deterioration of the sleepers on the second line are any evidence.

I approach the walk by parking in Henry Melville Cres in Gilmore and crossing the Monaro Highway via the underpass. A short walk up a well defined path leads to a step-over fence leading to the tracks and an easy walking trail alongside the tracks south to the siding. (hour return).

The very manual looking track machinery...


The siding looking back north...


Looking south on the approach...



At the end of the siding thousands of railway line plates and spikes dumped long ago...
